PURPOSE To evaluate the performance of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization guidance software that uses cone-beam computed tomography (CT) technology in identifying small hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tumors and feeding branches. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cone-beam CT and manual feeder vessel detection (MFD) software were used in chemoembolization of 68 HCCs 30 mm or smaller (mean ± standard deviation, 15.3 mm ± 5.2). Detectability of tumors and tumor-feeding sub-subsegmental arteries was… CONTINUE READING
