    Unenhanced CT scan: massive calcified plaques over the right subphrenic region and the left subphrenic region.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT;

    Unenhanced CT scan: massive calcified plaques over the right subphrenic region, the left subphrenic region and the hepatoduodenal ligament.

    Ultrasonography
     

    Right ascending infracostal sonogram: massive calcification along liver surface next to boundary between V and VI segments.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasonography;

    Epigastric sagittal sonogram: calcified nodules involving the lower border of left lobe of the liver and the lesser sac.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasonography;

    Left oblique intercostal sonogram: perisplenic calcifications.

Unenhanced CT scan: massive calcified plaques over the right subphrenic region, the hepatoduodenal ligament and the lesser sac. Contrast media (both intravenous and per os) should be avoided as they simulate calcifications. The high-density image detectable in the medulla of the surviving left kidney is a stent catheter which was applied during post-operative course following the development of an ureteral fistula.
