Enlarged cirrhotic liver. Multisegmental right hepatic lobe focals with faint homogenous wash-in of contrast in arterial phase and washout in venous and delayed phases.
Completely occluded of the portal vein lumen as well as its main branches with thrombosis.
Mild abdominal ascites. Enlarged spleen. Small left kidney.
70 years old male patient with liver cirrhosis, US of the abdomen (not included) showed multiple right hepatic lobe focal lesions together with elevated alpha-fetoprotein levels.
