Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common liver cancer, accounting for more than 90% of liver cancers. It results in between 250,000 and 1 million deaths globally per annum. Unlike other cancers, HCC can usually be diagnosed on imaging studies only, without tissue sampling confirmation. Nowadays, contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) is usually used to detect HCC in the clinic because it’s more applicable for the characterization of a known lesion. But the sensitivity of CEUS is less than 50% for small tumors.

Key words: Hepatocellular carcinoma; Contrast-enhanced ultrasound; Contrasted-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging
