Microvascular invasion (MVI) is a significant risk factor contributing to high recurrence ratio and poor prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Therefore, it is of great clinical significance to accurately predict MVI of HCC preoperatively. Texture analyses (TA) is a novel image post-processing technique, which analyze the distribution and associations of pixel intensities in images with a series of quantitative texture parameters. However, there was limited report on applying TA on MVI of HCC . The purpose of this study was to explore the value of contrast enhanced MRI texture analyses in the preoperative prediction of MVI of HCC preoperative.
