Liver cancer has become one of the most frequent fatal malignancies around the world. And the early precise diagnosis of different types of liver cancer is very critical for treatment strategy design. This retrospective study evaluated the diagnostic efficacy of amide proton transfer weighted (APTw) and dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) imaging for the differentiation between primary and secondary liver cancer. Results showed that a combination of APTw and DCE significantly improved the diagnosis of liver cancer.
