Case 8:   Adenoma

Diagnostic Category:

Clinical Presentation:

53 year old woman with liver lesion discovered on CT performed for abdominal pain.

CT: In hepatic steatosis

Imaging Findings:

Multiphase CT shows a typical hypervascular hepatic adenoma in a fatty liver. Note that the mass is hyperdense even on the unenhanced, portal venous and equilibrium phase with respect to the hypodense fatty liver parenchyma. On the background of non-steatotic liver parenchyma adenomas are often isodense and difficult to see on these three phases.
