    Fig.2a: Spiral CT in arterial phase obtained in March 2005, showing multiple hypodense metastatic lesions almost exclusively located within the three foci of highly hypervascular FNH.

     

    Fig.2b: Spiral CT in portal venous phase obtained in March 2005, showing multiple hypodense metastatic lesions almost exclusively located within the three foci of highly hypervascular FNH.

     

    Fig.2c: Spiral CT in delayed phase obtained in March 2005, showing multiple hypodense metastatic lesions almost exclusively located within the three foci of highly hypervascular FNH.

     

    Fig.2d: Spiral CT in portal venous phase obtained in March 2005, showing a single metastasis measuring 1 cm located outside the FNHs in segment VI.
