It measures approximately 6.6 x 7.0 x 7.6 cm (volume 190 ml). The liver shows perfusional abnormalities involving the left lobe in the early post contrast phases, likely related to the inflammatory process, no signs of portal vein thrombosis noted. Also, there are features of periportal oedema, particularly around the right portal tracts. Multiple small simple cysts scattered through the liver parenchyma. Small amount of free fluid adjacent to the liver capsule.
