MRI shows a large tumor in the right upper abdomen originating from the right liver lobe. The tumor has two main parts and seems to contain different parts of tissue. The coronal view showed that the tumor is mainly situated outside the liver (a: T2 sequence). The transversal view reveals that the ventral tumor part has a cystic appearance, whereas the dorsal part appeared more solid (b: T2 sequence). The T1 sequence after contrast application (c) showed an inhomogeneous contrast enhancement. The ventral part of the tumor is enhancing a lot, the dorsal solid part does not enhance in the lateral regions. d: Macroscopic appearance of the resected tumor specimen.
