HEMANGIOMA OF THE LIVER


Hemangioma of the liver is generally an innocuous incidental finding . At times the differential diagnosis considered would include a solitary secondary nodule. This would require further imaging investigations like CT and MRI. Colour and Power Doppler could be helpful in demonstrating the feeding vessel to a hemangioma , but is very difficult to demonstrate at times. 3D 4 D  glass body reconstruction could help in demonstrating the feeding vessel.

This was a 60 year old gentleman who was being evaluated for dyspepsia.
