Excellent presentation, Dr. França! Are you aware of any study with a model to distinguish HNF from adenoma, in which the features are the inputs, and that gives the probability of each one as an output?

Thank you for your comment! There is one such study from Taimr et al (@Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology), which is based on the characteristics on CEUS. I don't know any clinical \"App\" with such a model that we could implement in our practice. Best wishes, Manuela
