    Axial-oblique US section through the mass showing a clearly defined hypoechoic lesion with central inhomogeneous hyperechoic area

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: US image of leiomyosarcoma;

    Axial 10mm CT section demonstrating a soft tissue mass with sharp margins and a central cavitated area filled with oral contrast and air.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT images of leiomyosarcoma;

    Axial 10 mm CT section, 1 cm more cephaled than fig.2a, demonstrating the fistula connecting the central cavitated area with the intestinal lumen

    Enteroclysis showing a large mass with extraluminal component displacing adjacent loops and presenting a central cavitated area.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Enteroclysis images of leiomyosarcoma;

    Spot view . No mucosal abnormality is present.

    Coronal 5mm T1-weighted (TE=4.8/1, TR=147.0) image. The jejunal mass is of intermediate signal intensity, similar to that of muscles and presents central cavitation.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MRI images of leiomyosarcoma;

    Coronal 5mm T2-weighted image (TE=132.0/1 TR=2200.0)with fat saturation.Signal intensity of the mass is relatively high.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MRI images of leiomyosarcoma;

    Post-gadolinium axial T1-weighted image (TE=4.8/1 TR=147.0) showing significant enhancement of the mass.
