A. A CT scan of abdomen showing lesions that were read as metastatic disease. On closer inspection, vessels are seen coursing through the lesions, suggesting fatty infiltrations. B. A T1-weighted spin echo MRI (TR 500, TE111) in which the brightness of the lesions is hyperintense relative to liver, which is a clue that they are fatty infiltrated. C. A T2-weighted fast-spin echo (TR 4500, TE102) with fat saturation. Areas that were bright are now suppressed, indicating fatty liver with vessels coursing through it.
