Ultrasound

Hyperechoic liver nodule located at the bifurcation of the vessel on color & power doppler study.

Case Discussion

This is a presumptive diagnosis based on sonographic findings.

Hepatic haemangiomas are typically well defined hyperechoic lesions on ultrasound (this is not a specific finding). A small proportion (10%) however are hypoechoic. They may or may not show peripheral feeding vessels on colour Doppler.
