Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) is the most common cancer of the liver and the sixth most common cancer worldwide. Imaging plays a crucial role in HCC monitoring and diagnosis, as well as in clinical trials, where imaging can be used to plan therapies and evaluate response to treatment. However, the asymmetrical nature of HCC lesions and coexistence of chronic liver disease or cirrhosis in many patients makes accurate evaluation of HCC tumor response a unique challenge. Additionally, various imaging modalities offer their own benefits and disadvantages in assessing HCC tumor response.
We at Keosys have numerous resources available exploring the complexities and emerging innovations in the field of imaging in the treatment of HCC. Use these resources to discover trends and predictions from oncology and radiology experts, delve into best-practice examples from the field, and to gain deeper insights into the current and future state of imaging’s role in monitoring HCC.
