All examinations were read independently by two radiologists.
The clinical finding,
lesion density/ signal intensity (SI),
dynamic contrast-enhanced characteristics and morphologic charcateristics ( size,
bile duct compression and dilatation,
tumor extension in bile ducts and vascular structure,
liver capsule retraction,
extrahepatic extension and enlarged lymph node) of all lesions were analysed and registered by the observer using a standard form.
