  • Figure 1
    Fig.1

    A spiral-CT scan of the abdomen on an axial plane showing the presence of a dishomogeneous mass in front of the left kidney.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Fig.1;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Fig.2

    An image on the coronal plane showing the cranio-caudal extension of the mass, which is seen reaching the left iliac fossa.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Fig.2;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Fig.3

    The image acquired on the sagittal plane showing clearly the antero-posterior expansion of the mass that occupies the entire left part of the abdominal cavity, with several necrotic areas within the tumoralso being seen.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Fig.3;

    A 3D Multiplanar Reconstruction(MPR) clearly showing how the mass(right side of the image) dislocates a part of the small bowel(left side), and its realationship with the endoperitoneal fat(not infiltrated) and the...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Fig.4;

    An MPR on the coronal plane demonstrating more clearly the adhesion of the neoplastic structure to the muscular abdominal wall.
