Abstract

Hepatic hemangiomas are the most common benign tumors of the liver. They are usually single, small, and asymptomatic. However, giant hepatic hemangiomas have been reported in the past, usually detected as incidental findings. Radionuclide blood pool imaging studies are used to confirm the presence of a hemangioma. This report describes a case of a giant hepatic hemangioma detected using intravenous total-body arteriography, done as a part of radionuclide blood pool hemangioma study. This simple addition to the regular RBC blood pool hemangioma study helps to determine the size of the liver in the early arterial phase and shows obvious increased blood pool activity in the delayed phase. It is also useful in detecting lesions in other parts of the body when present.
