Background The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between follow-up imaging characteristics and overall survival (OS) in advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients under sorafenib treatment. Methods Associations between OS and objective response (OR) by mRECIST or early tumor shrinkage (ETS; ≥20% reduction in enhancing tumor d...


... Due to unique challenges in imaging assessment of HCC, criteria for evaluation of these imaging-based secondary outcome parameters have been developed, and response analysis by mRECIST has been shown to correlate with survival in HCC patients who underwent locoregional therapies, including RE [17,18]. Furthermore, the correlation between survival and objective response according to mRECIST after sorafenib treatment has been confirmed in the SILIUS trial and in the post-hoc analysis of sorafenib arm of the SORAMIC trial [19,20]. ...
