    Area of Interest: Abdominal wall; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital; Hernia;

    Transverse section through the superior half of the mass (yellow arrow) showing the hyperdense (ring-like) periphery of the mass, surrounding a relatively hypodense central part.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdominal wall; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital; Hernia;

    Coronal section showing the long axis of the mass (yellow arrow) in an oblique position alongside the (supposed) position of the inguinal ligament. The borders are somewhat irregular. The superior half has a...

    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system female; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    Transverse section showing both round ligaments (yellow arrows) extending from the uterus (broad ligament) to the internal inguinal ring. They both appear normal.
