Case 263:   Hemangioma

Diagnostic Category:

Clinical Presentation:

52 year old man with right upper quadrant pain.

MR: Cavernous Hemangioma

Imaging Findings:

Unenhanced T1w image shows a hypointense focal lesion within segment 7.  T2w images with fat saturation show high signal intensity, almost as hyperintense as fluid ("light bulb sign"). Arterial sequence shows discontinous nodular peripheral enhancement of the lesion with gradual centripetal enhancement on portal and equilibrium contrast phases typical for a cavernous hemangioma.
