The second-leading cause of cancer-related mortality in the world and the third most common cause of death among patients with cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) develops at a fairly constant rate—approximately 3% per year, regardless of cirrhotic stage. This Online Course covers the imaging of diffuse liver diseases that often result in HCC, as well as the various pitfalls and mimics leading to misinterpretation.
