Agreement Among Expert Radiologists in Diagnosing Primary Liver Tumors by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in Non-Cirrhotic Patients - A Double Blind International Multicenter Study
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is currently the method of choice for non-invasive
diagnosis of primary liver tumors. However, differentiation of hepatocellular carcinoma
(HCC) from adenoma and focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) remains challenging, particularly in
