Liver cancer is the third most common type of cancer. Among available treatment options, a surgical resection offers the best prognosis for long-term survival. It is important that such a surgical procedure is carefully prepared. Modern computer technology offers convenient ways to simulate different resection scenarios and help to determine the best treatment for a given case. This paper provides a non-exhaustive overview of existing computer-based systems for interventional planning of liver resections. They are reviewed according to their medical use case, e.g. if they support typical or atypical resections.
