    On a plain CT study, the hepatic mass (segment VIII) is clearly margined with fat-tissue attenuation (-98 HU), nodular and linear hyperdense components.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Hepatic angiomyolipoma;

    A CT scan obtained during the dynamic arterial phase, showing a slight enhancement of the hyperdense elements of the lesion.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Hepatic angiomyolipoma;

    A CT scan obtained during the early portal venous phase,showing a slight enhancement of the hyperdense elements of the lesion.

A longitudinal US image showing a homogeneously echogenic (it contains a small number of subtle linear hypoechoic densities), smoothly contoured lesion, measuring 6 x 5 x 5.5 cm, in dimensions, in the right hepatic lobe, with posterior acoustic enhancement. A well-defined border separates it from the adjacent normal hepatic tissue.
