ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Fatty infiltration of the liver

History: Shortness of breath and a past history of leukemia in remission.

Findings: Ventilation images utilizing Xenon-133 reveal a normal pattern of wash-in and wash-out. Additionally these demonstrate retained radiotracer over the right upper quadrant. Perfusion images using Tc-99m microaggregated albumin demonstrate normal lung perfusion. An axial CT image enhanced with oral and IV contrast demonstrate diffuse low attenuation of the liver relative to the spleen (approximately 30 HU lower) consistent with a diffusely fatty liver.

Ddx: Fatty infiltration of the liver

Dxhow: Correlation between the V/Q study and the CT scan.

Exam: N/A

No MeSH data available.
