AIM The present study aimed to evaluate pathological features of hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC) appearing hypointense on the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) map, and to elucidate the association between the signal intensity on the ADC map and metastatic recurrences after hepatectomy. METHODS In total, 52 consecutive patients with initial… CONTINUE READING
