Abstract: Candidates for liver transplantation (LT) with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) undergo a large number of diagnostic and interventional radiology procedures. A significant proportion of such procedures involve ionizing radiation with increased lifetime risk of cancer. The objective of our study was to review LT candidates with HCC to quantify ionizing radiation doses from different radiology procedures performed at a single transplant center.
