Technique: (Philips, Briliance 64) Abdomen CT scan with intravenous injection of contrast material 95 ml Xenetix™ (iobitridol) (120 Kvp, 17 mAs, 3 mm slice thickness).
Findings: An axial abdomen CT scan with intravenous injection of contrast material (portal venous phase) demonstrates a 4.2 x 3 cm ill-defined hypodense lesion in the periphery of the liver with mild enhancement. Normal enhancing liver tissue is seen within the lesion.

Technique: (Siemens Magnetom Skyra 3 Tesla) MRI T2W axial (TR 900 ms, TE 97 ms; 7.0/1.4 slice thickness).
Findings: Axial T2 weighted images of the upper abdomen reveal mild high signal intensity of the lesion with mild perifocal oedema.

Technique: (Siemens Magnetom Skyra 3 Tesla) MRI T1W fat supressed axial with intravenous injection of contrast material 20 ml Dotarem™ (Gadoteric acid) (TE = 1900 ms, TR= 3900 ms; 5.1 mm slice thickness).
Findings: Axial fat supressed T1 weighted images after contrast administration reveals clustered lesions with a maximum diameter of 2.7 cm and peripheral enhancement.

Technique: (Siemens Magnetom Skyra 3 Tesla) MRI DWI axial (TR 4600 ms, TE 60 ms; 7.0/1.4 slice thickness).
Findings: Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) of the upper abdomen show restricted diffusion of the lesion.

Technique: PET CT image acquisition one hour after injection of 365 MBq (9.8 mCi) 18F-FDG.
Findings: Axial 18F-FDG PET CT images show increased uptake (SUVmax 4.1) in the lesion.
