Figure 2 Biliary cystadenocarcinoma. A: Conventional sonography shows a multilocular cystic lesion in left lobe of the liver with nodular thickening of internal septa and mural nodules projecting into the cyst (arrow); B: Conventional sonography shows septal calcifications or stones (arrowhead); C: Color doppler flow imaging (CDFI) shows affluent vascularity in the internal septa (arrows).

A: Contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) shows hyperenhancement of the cystic wall, internal septations and intracystic solid portions during the arterial phase (arrows); B: CEUS shows hypoenhancement of the cystic wass, internal septations and intracystic solid portions during the portal and late phases (arrowheads).
