OBJECTIVE To compare the diagnostic accuracies of Lipiodol computed tomography (CT) and helical biphasic CT as preoperative imaging modalities for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Lipiodol CT after digital subtraction angiography has long been used as a highly sensitive imaging modality for HCC. The recent advent of helical CT has allowed scanning the entire liver during both the arterial and portal venous phase of contrast enhancement. METHODS The authors analyzed… CONTINUE READING
