Core Tip Focal liver lesions are being found more com-monly, which may need further investigations. History and physical examination is essential part of work up. Blood work is an important adjunct in the patient’s journey. There are different modalities of imaging (B-mode ultrasound, contrast enhanced ultrasound, contrast enhanced computed tomography and contrast enhanced magnetic resonance); each has advantages and disadvantages. The decision of biopsy or surgery is kept for the treating team.
