Background: We determined the radiologic characteristics of intrahepatic cholangicarcinoma (ICC) on single-level dynamic computed tomography during hepatic arteriography (CTHA) and assessed the hemodynamics of the tumor. Methods: Eleven patients with pathologically confirmed ICC underwent single-level dynamic CTHA. After placing the catheter tip in the proper hepatic artery and running a 30-s continuous scan, scanning was performed every 15 or 30 s for 120 s. The change of contrast-enhancement… CONTINUE READING
