Contrast enhanced ultrasound. Benign focal liver lesions are typically hyperenhancing in the portal venous phase.
Benign focal liver lesions are typically hyperenhancing in the portal venous and late phases of contrast enhanced ultrasound. Here we demonstrate a typically hyperenhancing hemangioma with peripheral nodular contrast enhancement and next to the hemangioma also a focal nodular hyperplasia with central arterial blood supply (contrast injection of Sonovue™ using the Aixplorer. [(1)].
