Case 344: Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC)
64 year old man with history of chronic hepatitis C.
US: Typical, mixed echogenicity
Ultrasound shows a mixed hyperechoic and hypoechoic HCC in a cirrhotic liver. A mass with mixed echogenicity in a cirrhotic liver is typical, but not specific for HCC. The round echogenic component of the mass has no correlation to any alterations on the CT and MR of this case.
