Using computed tomography in patients with primary liver cancer, it is possible to clearly distinguish between hepatocellular and cholangiocellular cancer. Hepatocellular cancer is characterized by damage to one of the lobes of the liver, which can be completely occupied by the pathological formation, and most importantly, there is no dilatation of the bile ducts. In cholangiocellular cancer, the central parts of the liver, adjacent to the hilum, are affected mainly by dilation of the intrahepatic ducts, while the peripheral parts remain intact.
