Hepatobiliary pathology presents many opportunities for interventional radiologists to provide patient care. Nearly all tools and techniques employed by the active interventional radiologist, from ablation to venous stenting, can be applied to the liver and bile ducts. These procedures can broadly be divided into vascular procedures, biliary interventions, and procedures focused on the parenchyma. A detailed understanding of the normal physiology and anatomy of this complex organ is a prerequisite for providing optimal care. This chapter reviews hepatobiliary physiology and anatomy and includes the imaging modalities that are used to guide percutaneous hepatic intervention. It also considers the anatomy and physiology of the pancreas, given its association with the liver by ductal anatomy.
