Association of the total tumor volume (TTV) with serum AFP level (panel A), vascular invasion (panel B), MELD (panel C) and Child score (panel D). AFP level and vascular invasion, but not MELD and Child score, were significantly associated with TTV. Data were expressed as median (horizontal bars) and 25% to 75% percentile of the distribution (lower and upper margin of the square); the upper and lower vertical bars indicate 90% and 10% percentile of the distribution, respectively.
