OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to prospectively evaluate the results of helical CT in the detection of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients with cirrhosis undergoing orthotopic liver transplantation. SUBJECTS AND METHODS. Eighty-five patients with cirrhosis were studied preoperatively with biphasic helical CT. Arterial, portal, and equilibrium phase images were obtained after injection of 170 mL of contrast material at 5 mL/sec. The prospective CT interpretation was compared… CONTINUE READING
