Computed tomography of hepatocellular carcinoma. Comparison with scintigraphy and ultrasonography

Journal Article:

Abstract

The detectability of hepatocellular carcinoma by computed tomography (CT) was evaluated on 76 cases. The detectability by plain CT was 93% with only slight improvement following a drip infusion of contrast medium. A comparison of scintigraphy, ultrasonography, and CT was also done on 63 cases. From the standpoint of the overall detectability of the tumor, CT was as good as ultrasonography or scintigraphy. Several cases were positive only on either CT or ultrasonography but no case was positive on scintigraphy alone. We believe that the combination of CT and ultrasonography is the most reliable as the screening method.
