RADIOLOGY: HEPATOBILIARY: Case# 107: HCC, S/P CRYOABLATION. Patient with cirrhosis and recent cryo ablation of hepatocellular carcinoma. Comparison is made to an abdominal CT from 2 months ago. The liver has a cirrhotic configuration. The previously identified right lobe hepatic mass has been replaced by a subcapsular lentiform low attenuation collection consistent with cryo ablation. Heterogeneity of hepatic parenchyma is noted in the dome and caudate lobes. The appearance is similar to that noted on prior exam. The gallbladder is absent. Quantity of ascites has increased significantly since the prior examination. There is splenomegaly. The portal vein remains patent. Bilateral renal cysts are again noted. Review of bone windows shows no evidence of osseous metastasis.
