An arterial phase image (a) of a lesion showing a rapid homogeneous contrast filling (high velocity vascular in-flow). Portal venous (b) and delayed (c) images in which the lesion retains the contrast material and shows the same attenuation values as that of venous vessels (blood pool sign).

A second lesion is identified at the V liver segment. Imaging findings obtained after contrast medium administration (peripheral globular enhancement on arterial phase and centripetal filling on following acquisitions) are diagnostic for cavernous hemangioma.
