BACKGROUND AND AIM The study aims to demonstrate whether the wash-in and wash-out time can be reliable as a criterion in the differential diagnosis between hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and other hepatic nodules with vascular pattern similar to HCC on contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS). METHODS From February 2012 to February 2013, 214 patients with hepatic nodules displayed rapid hyperenhancement and quick wash-out on CEUS were included in this study. Before performing CEUS, all nodules… CONTINUE READING
