As abdominal imaging volumes have increased, the incidence of incidentally identified benign hepatic lesions has substantially increased. Familiarity with imaging appearances of benign hepatic tumors, both common and less commonly encountered, allows the radiologist to give an informed differential diagnosis. In addition to clinical history, awareness of imaging findings of benign hepatic lesions on ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging is useful in evaluating these lesions and avoiding unnecessary diagnostic interventions or imaging surveillance.
