Using our contrast-enhanced CT technique, focal nodular hyperplasia shows a uniform enhancement pattern during the early phase and becomes isodense or slightly hypodense to the surrounding liver, with no deﬁnable capsule. Cavernous hemangioma shows a globular enhancement in the lesion during the arterial phases and slowly diffuses throughout the lesion during the later phase. Hepatocellular carcinoma shows nodular enhancement within the mass that is nonuniform in density because of areas of necrosis.
