    Abstract

    The use of combined isotope and ultrasonic scanning in the diagnosis of amoebic liver abscess is described, together with details of three cases of this condition seen in the Bristol area in a period of two years. The addition of ultrasonic scanning greatly increases the accuracy of diagnosis by demonstrating a fluid-filled, space-occupying lesion and should ideally be employed whenever liver abscess is suspected.
