To determine the optimal screening interval for detecting small (<20 mm) hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in a high-risk group using multiphase contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT), we evaluated the growth rate of primary single HCC. Forty-nine primary single HCC cases were reviewed. CECT screening was performed more than two times preceding to the diagnosis in 29 cases, and HCC nodule was identified at least two times in 22 cases. The initial nodule sizes ranged between 3 and 30 mm… CONTINUE READING
