Abstract

Delivering a high standard of care with up-to-date expertise remains critical in for patients who have primary colorectal cancer and subsequently undergo hepatic resection for colorectal liver metastases. The management of colorectal cancer liver metastases requires a multidisciplinary approach that involves not only experts in hepatobiliary surgery and medical oncology but an inclusive team with subspecialty expertise in diagnostic imaging, pathology, and interventional radiology.
