  • Figure 1
    762_1a

    Transverse US image of the liver shows multiple echogenic foci consistent with hamartomas.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: 762_1a;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    762_2a

    Transverse sonogram of the right kidney shows large, heterogeneous, predominantly hyperechoic masses replacing the kidney.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: 762_2a;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    762_3a
     

    Axial contrast enhanced CT scans of the kidneys shows large bilateral renal masses containing fat interspersed with other solid elements.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: 762_3a;

    The consequent slice shows the extention of the tumors in the retroperitoneum.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: 762_3a;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    762_4a
     

    The tumors occupying the retroperitoneum are marked hyperintense on T1 weighted axial MR image.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: 762_4a;

    The tumors are also hyperintense on T2 weighted axial MR image.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: 762_4a;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    762_5a

    Color Doppler sonography showed hypervascularity and especially arterial flow on multiple sides of the tumors.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: 762_5a;
     
     
  • Figure 6
    762_6a

    Cerebral CT shows periventricular calcifications which is an important component of tuberous sclerosis.
