  • Focal lesions in the cirrhotic liver

    Detecting hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is particularly challenging in the cirrhotic liver. Although in some cases imaging techniques may fail to detect small HCCs altogether, especially when benign lesions are present, MRI is considered the most accurate imaging method for the detection and characterization of HCC. In cirrhosis, there is a stepwise progression from regenerative nodules (RN) to HCCs and functional changes occur within the lesion that affect its imaging characteristics. This article provides an extensive overview of multiphasic postcontrast MR and CT imaging techniques for effectively detecting and characterizing focal liver lesions.
