|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Liver Cirrhosis||Procedure: Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound Imaging||Not Applicable|
I. To evaluate the sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) for diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients at risk for HCC in a multicenter setting.
I. To validate CEUS Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System (LI-RADS) and determine the prevalence of HCC in each CEUS LI-RADS category.
II. To evaluate inter-reader reliability of CEUS for HCC diagnosis. III. To evaluate covariates that might limit diagnostic performance of CEUS for HCC diagnosis.

Experimental: Diagnostic Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound Imaging (CEUS)
Patients receive sulfur hexafluoride IV and undergo CEUS imaging over 10 minutes.
Procedure: Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound Imaging
- Sensitivity of contrast-enhanced ultrasound evaluation (CEUS) for diagnosis of Hepatocellular cancer using a 95% confidence interval 95% confidence interval for HCC diagnosis using CEUS LR-5 classification [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]A value of 67% for sensitivity is expected based on recent meta-analysis studies of CEUS for focal liver mass characterization.
- Specificity of contrast-enhanced ultrasound evaluation (CEUS) for diagnosis of Hepatocellular cancer using a 95% confidence interval [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]A value of 91% for specificity is expected based on recent meta-analysis studies of CEUS for focal liver mass characterization.
- Positive Predictive Value of contrast-enhanced ultrasound evaluation (CEUS) for diagnosis of Hepatocellular cancer using a 95% confidence interval [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]A value of 93% for Positive Predicative Value is expected based on recent meta-analysis studies of CEUS for focal liver mass characterization.
- Negative Predictive Value of contrast-enhanced ultrasound evaluation (CEUS) for diagnosis of Hepatocellular cancer using a 95% confidence interval [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]A value of 60% for Negative predictive value is expected based on recent meta-analysis studies of CEUS for focal liver mass characterization.
