Evaluation of hepatocellular carcinoma after TACE


The hepatocellular carcinoma nourishes on the hepatic artery, transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) using iodized oil and anticancer drug is an effective treatment for small hepatocellular carcinoma.

Post procedural Imaging is generally advised after 3-4 weeks, either triple phase CT, dynamic MRI or contrastenhanced USG. The accumulation pattern of the iodized oil and enhancement pattern of the mass is to be observed to evaluate the response to the treatment.
