OBJECTIVE To evaluate the sensitivity of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at detecting hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS MRIs performed within 120 days of transplant, and pathology, were reviewed. RESULTS Of the 87 patients included in the final analysis, 58 had HCC at explant (106 total HCCs). The per-patient and per-lesion sensitivity was 74.1% (43/58) and 81.1% (86/106), respectively. The sensitivity based on size <1cm, 1-2 cm, and >2 cm was 80.0% (28/35), 77.2% (44… CONTINUE READING
