OBJECTIVE: The purposes of this article are to highlight the similarities and differences in workup and work flow across multiple institutions in the preoperative imaging assessment of liver donors; to lay the foundation for developing consensus guidelines; to illustrate clinically relevant anatomic variants; to introduce a standardized reporting template; and to review postprocessing work flow and postoperative donor complications.
CONCLUSION: Further investigation and consensus are needed to determine protocols, time intervals, and duration of follow-up of liver donors that are cost-effective and clinically relevant.
