Pre-contrast, arterial, and portal venous phase CT images demonstrate a 29 x 26 mm well-defined lesion at segment VII of the liver. The lesion shows arterial hyperenhancement and washout in the portal venous phase. Findings are most compatible with hepatocellular carcinoma.
The right branch of the hepatic artery arises early from the right edge of the celiac trunk and is best seen on coronal MIP and 3D volume imaging.
The case illustrates typical CT findings of hepatocellular carcinoma.
