Figure 4: Magnetic resonance imaging of the same patient as Figure 3. Axial T2-weighted image showing large hyperintense lesion (black arrow, a) in the right lobe and appearing heterogeneously hyperintense on axial T1-weighted image (black arrow, b). The lesion is showing diffusion restriction appearing hyperintense the axial diffusion-weighted imaging series (black arrow, c) and appearing hypointense on the apparent diffusion coefficient mapping – (black arrow, d) mean apparent diffusion coeffi cient value is 0.9 × 10−3 mm2/s. Diagnosis is confirmed as hepatocellular carcinoma by biopsy
