    Abstract

    In order to analyze the hemodynamic properties of early hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and adenomatous hyperplasia (AH), three lesions (two HCCs, one AH) depicted as hypoattenuating at CTA and iso attenuating at CTAP were correlated with the histopathological findings. The number of normal hepatic arteries in the tumor was lower than in the liver. Degeneration and narrowing of the lumens were also seen microscopically. All tumors showed the replacing growth pattern and had similar numbers of the portal tracts in the tumor to the liver. The decreased number of intratumoral normal arteries is suspected to be a characteristic finding of the early stage of HCC.
