Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the sixth most prevalent cancer worldwide and the third leading cause of cancer-related death. Although chronic hepatitis B is the primary risk factor for HCC in Asia, chronic hepatitis C is primary in Europe and America. Recently, progresses in diagnostic modalities and therapeutic procedures have prolonged the survival in patients with HCC. However, in some patients, this led to a concurrent worsening of the tumour progression beyond the liver and the development of bone metastasis.To our knowledge, there are no prior studies describing the MRI features of HCC bone metastases. Thus, the aim of this retrospective study is to describe the MRI features of HCC bones metastases using a standard abdominal protocol.
