Hepatic hydatid cyst
A 70-year-old man presented following a road traffic accident, in which he sustained a left leg fracture. Sonography (FAST) scan was performed for detection of abdominal free fluid and the presence of an echogenic hepatic mass (not shown here) warranted further evaluation with CT scan.

CT scan shows a round well defined cystic mass in the liver parenchyma in segment VIII which has septations and mural calcification. There is no evidence of infection within the cyst.
There is also a simple renal cyst.
The image appearance is highly suggestive of hydatid cyst (serologically proven).
