BA bile acid, HCC hepatocellular carcinoma, N = 50; FL number of focal lesions, LN lymph node, Met metastasis, CHP-S Child-Pugh Score, B. stage Barcelona stage of HCC, * indicates P value < 0.05 and presence of a significant correlation. NS indicates P value > 0.05 and absence of a significant correlation
