OBJECTIVE Local recurrence after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a major problem that needs to resolved to increase the survival rate of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). CE-US with Sonazoid(®), the second-generation contrast media, can detect smaller HCC lesions and the detection rate of ultrasonically unrecognized hypervascular HCC was improved by CE-US. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the role of CE-US with Sonazoid(®) in improving radicality and reducing local recurrence after… CONTINUE READING
