A three-scale scoring system (1=poor; 2=fair; 3=good) was used to grade the fat-suppression quality and lesion conspicuity. For fat suppression quality, a score 1 was assigned when it prevented lesion characterization or when it was obviously not homogeneous in a large region of the image.
Therefore, the primary endpoint of this trial was to assess the value of adding CEUS to FI for improving lesion conspicuity and the technical feasibility of percutaneous RFA of HCCs (1-2 cm) inconspicuous on FI alone.
