Summary The purpose of our study was to evaluate the process and frequency of newly developed hypervascular hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in serial gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI examinations in patients with chronic liver disease during clinical follow-up periods. Approximately one third of newly developed hypervascular HCCs had the presence of high-risk nodule before hypervascularization in the serial gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI examinations. High-risk nodule tended to develop into hypervascular HCC after having almost doubled in size during 1 year of high-risk nodule presence.
