For those at risk, regular screening is crucial. Hepatoma (liver cancer) screening includes a blood test (alpha-fetoprotein level) and six-monthly liver ultrasounds.
Abdominal ultrasounds are noninvasive procedures used to assess the organs and structures of the abdomen. These include the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, bile ducts, spleen, and abdominal aorta. Using ultrasound technology, abdominal organs and structures can be visualised clearly from outside the body.
