Core Tip The development of new treatment options for hepatocellular carcinoma has changed not only the way in which cancer is treated, but also how it is diagnosed and especially the assessment of tumor response. The traditional radiologic methods, which are mainly based on the evaluation of variations in tumor size, are considered insufficiently sensitive and unreliable in determining tumor progression when targeted therapies like sorafenib are involved. New assessment tools trying to combine morphological and vascular functional data to obtain an accurate measurement of tumor characteristics such as volume, density or vascularization, showed positive results in assessing patient’s response to therapy.
