  • Figure 1
    Ultrasonography
     

    A sonogram showing a huge, slightly heterogeneous mass (indicated by green asterisk) growing from the gastric wall into the lumen (indicated by blue asterisk). The mass is located deep into the submucosal echogenic...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasonography;

    An ultrasonogram in the longitudinal view in the long axis of the mass showing its fuse-shaped morphology.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasonography;

    An ultrasonogram showing the vascularity of the mass, both peripherally (indicated by red arrows) and centrally (indicated by green arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasonography;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    CT
     

    A CT image in the axial section reconstructed from a spiral acquisition in an early portal phase after contrast material administration, showing a mass which appears slightly hyperdense relative to muscles (indicated...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT;

    A CT image of a section in a lower level showing the transition between the mass (indicated by yellow asterisk) and fluid in the lumen (indicated by blue asterisk). Note the correlation of this image and the one...

  • Figure 3
    Upper barium study

    An image obtained with an upper barium study, showing a huge filling defect mainly in the gastric body, with smooth margins and sparing the mucosa.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: upper barium series;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    A preoperative chest X-ray film
     

    A chest X-ray film partially showing a filling defect is in the gastric fundus, surrounded by luminal air.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Preoperative chest x-ray film;

    A detailed view of the lateral film also showing a part of the mass surrounded by air (indicated by red arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Preoperative chest x-ray film;
     
     
A sonogram showing a huge, slightly heterogeneous mass (indicated by green asterisk) growing from the gastric wall into the lumen (indicated by blue asterisk). The mass is located deep into the submucosal echogenic line (indicated by red arrows), apparently in the muscular hypoechoic layer (indicated by yellow asterisks).
 
An ultrasonogram in the longitudinal view in the long axis of the mass showing its fuse-shaped morphology.
 
An ultrasonogram showing the vascularity of the mass, both peripherally (indicated by red arrows) and centrally (indicated by green arrows).
 
A CT image in the axial section reconstructed from a spiral acquisition in an early portal phase after contrast material administration, showing a mass which appears slightly hyperdense relative to muscles (indicated by an asterisk), partially filling the gastric fundus.
 
A CT image of a section in a lower level showing the transition between the mass (indicated by yellow asterisk) and fluid in the lumen (indicated by blue asterisk). Note the correlation of this image and the one obtained with US.
