This paper introduces four common methods (ultrasonography, blood biochemical examination, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging) for early screening of liver cancer and the core principles of detection with the story of detectives tracking suspects. This paper takes the high-risk population of primary liver cancer as the main subject, combines the knowledge of medicine and analytical chemistry, popularizes the early detection process of liver cancer, encourages the population with high risk of liver cancer to have regular physical examination, and enables people to have a more comprehensive understanding of cancer detection.

Key words: Liver cancer diagnosis, Analytical chemistry, Ultrasonography, Alpha fetoprotein (AFP), Dynamic enhanced CT, Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
