  • Figure 1
    Abdominal plain film

    Abdominal plain film shows an almost gasless abdomen. Some bowel gas is situated in the left upper quadrant.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Abdominal plain film;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Non-enhanced CT scan
     

    CT scan of the abdomen (scout view) demonstrates marked displacement of bowel loops to the left.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Non-enhanced CT scan;

    Non-enhanced CT scan at the level of the renal veins shows a large, 23 x 14 cm well-defined heterogeneous soft tissue mass occupying almost the entire epigastrium and right hemiabdomen, displacing the small bowel...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Non-enhanced CT scan;

    Attenuation values were 15 HU on dynamic contrast-enhanced CT scan.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Non-enhanced CT scan;

    On contrast-enhanced CT scan of the lower pelvis, the lower part of the tumor has fat attenuation. Within the fatty tissue, streaky areas of increased attenuation and a small rounded mass on the left side (curved...
