Patient
male, 55 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    An unenhanced CT scan

    No lesion is detected (the tumor is isodense to liver parenchyma). The central scar is identified as a hypodense area. CT findings of portal hypertension (ascites and splenomegaly) are also present.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Unenhanced CT scan.;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Contrast enhanced CT
     

    On arterial phase (a) the lesion shows a heterogeneous enhancement. On the portal venous (b) and delayed (c) phases, it becomes progressively hypodense compared to the surrounding liver parenchyma (wash-out). On all...

On arterial phase (a) the lesion shows a heterogeneous enhancement. On the portal venous (b) and delayed (c) phases, it becomes progressively hypodense compared to the surrounding liver parenchyma (wash-out). On all three phases, the central scar remains hypodense, without contrast enhancement.
