An Incidentally Discovered Hepatic Mass with Rim Calcification
- 20 Downloads
A wide array of pathologic abnormalities can cause hepatic calcifications, which are relatively uncommon and may result from both benign and malignant tumors, as well as inflammatory and infectious conditions. A pattern recognition approach is important to follow when faced with characterization of a calcified hepatic lesion. Radiologists should be aware of morphologic imaging features of calcified liver lesions to help differentiate benign from malignant lesions. Liver biopsy should be offered when the diagnosis is doubtful.
