Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
newly diagnosed HCC
  • Subjects with newly diagnosed untreated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) will be enrolled.
  • Subjects with the following conditions will be excluded:

liver cancer other than HCC, treated HCC, post major abdominal surgery, contraindications to liver tumor biopsy, contraindications to local percutaneous treatment of liver tumors, low quality ARFI measurement

Other: stiffness measurement using ARFI
Stiffness measurement will be performed for HCC using ARFI technique.
Other Name: Acuson S2000

Detailed Description:

Regression modelings as well as validity testings including cut-off identification will be acquired by performing both qualitative and quantitative measurements of HCC using reference diagnostic modalities e.g. pathology grading, dynamic CT scanning, etc.
