male, 72 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Hydatid cyst
     

    Axial HASTE T2 weighted image: the liver mass is inhomogeneously hyperintense with a hypointense wall (according to calcific component) and an internal serpent-like hyperintense floating membranes.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Hydatid cyst;

    Coronal HASTE T2 weighted image: the liver mass is inhomogeneously hyperintense with a hypointense wall (according to calcific component) and an internal serpent-like hyperintense floating membranes.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Hydatid cyst;

    Axial GRE T1 weighted image w/o injection of c.m. shows large cystic lesion in the right hepatic lobe with inhomogeneous hypointense signal intensity

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Hydatid cyst;

    On axial GRE T1 weighted image after Gadolinium injection, the lesion presents no enhancement
