In this thesis, we develop image analysis techniques, applied and tested in a clinical environment, to support the management of patients with (metastatic) liver cancer The incidence of this cancer is rising and represents approximately 10% of cancer cases in men and women. Image analysis of the liver is difficult, in part because it is the only organ mixing arterial and (portal) venous blood, and in part because of the large excursion it is undergoing during respiration.
