PURPOSE To compare the effectiveness of radio-frequency (RF) ablation with that of percutaneous ethanol injection in the treatment of small hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty-six patients with 112 small (< or = 3-cm-diameter) HCCs underwent RF ablation (42 patients with 52 tumors) or percutaneous ethanol injection (44 patients with 60 tumors). Therapeutic efficacy was evaluated with dual-phase spiral computed tomography performed at least 4 months after treatment… CONTINUE READING
