female, 79 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Prone spot view from barium enema

    Puckered, extrinsically compressed, proximal transverse colon.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Prone spot view from barium enema;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Non-contrast CT of the abdomen
     

    Calcified gallbladder wall (dark grey line) with gall stone (light grey line), dilated intrahepatic bile ducts and mass extending from the gallbladder to the colon and into the liver.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Non-contrast CT of the abdomen;

  • Figure 3
    Post-contrast CT of the abdomen
     

    Enhancement of the gallbladder mass extending into the liver and transverse colon is seen. Periportal lymphadenopathy ( white lines) is more conspicious.

    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Post-contrast CT of the abdomen;

    Soft-tissue mass causing almost complete occulsion of the transverse colon.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Post-contrast CT of the abdomen;

    On coronal reformatting, the soft-tissue mass causing almost complete occulsion of the transverse colon is better appreciated.
