Introduction

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains a remarkable health hazard to human beings. Radiological imaging plays a crucial role in the clinical management of this disease, with respect to diagnosis and follow-up monitoring. Precise interpretation of the imaging features of HCC is best preceded by a comprehensive understanding of the gross pathomorphological characteristics of the disease.1Although the role of diagnostic angiography for HCC has diminished in the past decade, we included the figures of angiography as they well illustrate the pathomorphological process.
