Figure 2: Magnetic resonance imaging of the same patient as Figure 1. The lesion is hyperintense on T2-weighted imaging (black arrow, a) and hypointense on T1-weighted imaging (black arrow, b). The lesion is showing diffusion restriction as evident on the diffusion series (open white arrow, c) and apparent diffusion coefficient mapping images (black arrow, d) and mean apparent diffusion coefficient value is 0.53 × 10−3 mm2/s. Diagnosis is confirmed as hepatocellular carcinoma by biopsy. There was mild patchy altered signal intensity in the parenchyma – likely due to portal vein thrombosis (small white arrow, c)
