The prevalence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is increasing and the Czech Republic is no exception. Therefore, effective care for these patients is becoming increasingly important. Radiology plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and treatment of these patients. The diagnosis of HCC can be made even without histological verification only on the basis of finding by imaging methods. A number of invasive radiological procedures, with thermoablation and chemoembolization, can be used to treat these patients. The data of the Institute of Health Information and Statistics of the Czech Republic show that in centers in the Czech Republic, where a comprehensive diagnostic, and above all therapeutic approach to HCC treatment is offered, the average survival of these patients is statistically significantly longer.
