OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to evaluate the diagnostic impact of varying slice thickness on multidetector CT to optimize detection of hypervascular hepatocellular carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-three patients with 87 hypervascular hepatocellular carcinomas (diameter: range, 3-80 mm; mean, 22 mm) and 19 patients with either chronic hepatitis or liver cirrhosis and without hepatocellular carcinoma who had undergone early arterial and late arterial phase imaging of the… CONTINUE READING
