An overview of diagnostic imaging techniques for detecting hepatocellular carcinoma

  • Choichiro Kido


The frequency of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is increasing in Japan where it is now the third leading cause of death among males. HCC is relatively uncommon in the West but it is more common in Africa, Southeast Asia and Japan; and it is also known to have a high incidence in areas where the HBs antigen is prevalent.
