    Axial CT image, without contrast. CT reveals a large and inhomogeneous soft-tissue attenuation mass of the left adrenal gland with some calcifications.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Contrast agent-intravenous; Special Focus: Haemangioma;

    Axial CT image, after contrast; arterial phase. In this contrast phase, nodular and peripheral areas of enhancement are shown. See also image 1e.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Contrast agent-intravenous; Special Focus: Haemangioma;

    Axial CT image, after contrast; portal-venous phase. This contrast phase shows peripheral and nodular areas of marked enhancement. See also image 1f.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Contrast agent-intravenous; Special Focus: Haemangioma;

    Axial CT image, after contrast; delayed phase. Delayed contrast phase demonstrates a further and gradual enhancement of the lesion. See also image 1g.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Contrast agent-intravenous; Special Focus: Haemangioma;

    MPR coronal CT image, after contrast; arterial phase.
