AB  - BACKGROUND: This study aimed to compare the diagnostic values of
      contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and contrast-enhanced computed tomography
      (CECT) in detecting small hepatocellular carcinoma (SHCC). METHODS: A series of
      related articles from 2001 to 2015 were searched in PubMed and Embase databases. 
      Data from selected articles were pooled to analyze the sensitivity, specificity, 
      positive likelihood ratio (PLR), negative likelihood ratio (NLR), diagnostic odds
      ratio (DOR), and summary receiver operating characteristic (SROC) curve using
      Meta-DiSc software. Heterogeneity was estimated using chi-based Cochran-Q test
      and I-statistics, and publication bias was estimated using Egger test in Stata
      software. RESULTS: In total, 8 high-quality articles based on 623 subjects
      including 318 SHCC cases were included. For the extracted data, no heterogeneity 
      and publication bias were observed among these studies. The following respective 
      data on CEUS and CECT were pooled: sensitivities: 0.75 (95% confidence interval
      [CI]: 0.70-0.80) and 0.74 (95% CI: 0.68-0.78); specificity: 0.91 (95% CI:
      0.87-0.94) and 0.92 (95% CI: 0.89-0.95); PLRs: 5.99 (95%CI: 3.28-10.92) and 7.76 
      (95% CI: 3.12-19.28); NLRs: 0.31 (95% CI: 0.20-0.49) and 0.32 (95% CI:
      0.20-0.50); DORs: 27.38 (95% CI: 14.38-52.11) and 30.02 (95% CI: 9.32-96.62).
      Area under the SROC curve: 0.91 and 0.89 and no significant statistical result
      was identified between them (Z = 0.23, P = .82). CONCLUSION: CEUS showed a
      diagnostic ability comparable to that of CECT in detecting SHCC.
