Primary liver cancer is one of the most common malignant tumor and leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Basically therapeutic strategies were considered and given based on the staging of liver cancer. Thus, the confirmatory diagnosis of numbers and distribution of malignant lesions were extreme important. Enhanced CT or MRI is routinely imaging scans to detect and identify lesions. Unfortunately, some malignant lesions usually presented untypical imaging characteristics, especially among lesions no larger than 1 cm, which misleading to the exact staging of liver cancer and the optimal therapeutic strategies.
Basically most of blood supply for malignant liver tumors is from the hepatic artery. Based on this fact, hepatic arterial digital subtraction angiography could potentially elevate the accuracy and sensitivity of detection malignant lesions numbers and distribution.
In this study the investigators will compare the numbers and distribution of malignant lesions before and after hepatic arteriography, then to revise the staging of liver cancer and to provide better therapeutic strategies.

An ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS causing chronic liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma in woodchucks. It closely resembles the human hepatitis B virus.
The type species of the genus ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS which causes human HEPATITIS B and is also apparently a causal agent in human HEPATOCELLULAR CARCINOMA. The Dane particle is an intact hepatitis virion, named after its discoverer. Non-infectious spherical and tubular particles are also seen in the serum.
The first alpha-globulins to appear in mammalian sera during development of the embryo and the dominant serum proteins in early embryonic life. They reappear in the adult serum during certain pathologic states, primarily hepatocellular carcinoma. They may also be elevated in the amniotic fluid and maternal serum during pregnancy in ANENCEPHALY.
A primary malignant neoplasm of epithelial liver cells. It ranges from a well-differentiated tumor with EPITHELIAL CELLS indistinguishable from normal HEPATOCYTES to a poorly differentiated neoplasm. The cells may be uniform or markedly pleomorphic, or form GIANT CELLS. Several classification schemes have been suggested.
The founding member of the EPH FAMILY RECEPTORS. It was first cloned from an erythropoietin-producing human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line and is highly conserved among many mammalian species. Overproduction of the EphA1 receptor is associated with tumors and tumor cells of epithelial origin. It is also expressed at high levels in LIVER; LUNG; and KIDNEY; which is in contrast to many other members of the Eph receptor that are found primarily in tissues of the nervous system.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
