Detection and characterization of focal lesions in the cirrhoticliver may pose a diagnostic dilemma. Several benign andmalignant lesions may be found in a cirrhotic liver along withhepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and may exhibit typical oratypical imaging features. In this pictorial essay, we illustratecomputed tomography and magnetic resonance imagingfindings of lesions such as simple bile duct cysts, hemangioma,focal nodular hyperplasia-like nodules, peribiliary cysts,intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, lymphoma, and metastases,all of which occur in cirrhotic livers with varying prevalences.Pseudolesions, such as perfusion anomalies, focal confluentfibrosis, and segmental hyperplasia, will also be discussed.Imaging characterization of non-HCC lesions in cirrhosis is importantin formulating an accurate diagnosis and triaging thepatient towards the most appropriate management.
