The liver has a unique blood supply; mostly received from the portal vein rather than an artery. However, HCC tumours receive blood coming from the hepatic artery. These separate blood supplies, combined with typical characteristics of HCC tumours, usually allow identification using CT or MRI scans. For scans that are inconclusive, a biopsy may be performed for disease confirmation, but this is rarely required now that imaging technology is so advanced.
