OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to identify the essential number of phases from multiphasic CT for 1- to 2-cm hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) on surveillance ultrasound and to compare the results with the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD) standard (arterial phase hypervascularity and portal venous phase [PVP] or delayed(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively identify magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings that are associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in 1-2-cm nodules detected at surveillance ultrasonography (US) and to propose newer MR imaging diagnostic criteria. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional research ethics board approval was obtained, and informed patient(More)
BACKGROUND Appreciating the utility of published diagnostic criteria for autoimmune pancreatitis, when compared to the characteristics of patients clinically managed as having disease, informs and refines ongoing clinical practice.

However, the latest guidelines' imaging work-up algorithm has been shown to improve sensitivity of(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether there is a significant difference in tumour stage between patients initially found with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) at a tertiary hepatobiliary centre and patients referred with tumours detected elsewhere; and to determine variables associated with referral in a palliative stage. METHODS A retrospective review of 12,199(More)
