Figure 1
Figure 1 May 1984 computed tomography scan revealed a giant, heterogeneous tumor in the right liver with internal calcifications, but the nature of the tumor was not clarified. This may be an examination conducted by the first computed tomography scan machine in China.

Figure 3 Enhanced computed tomography scan after admission in 2010. A: Routine (noncontrast) scan: A huge space-occupying lesion of the right liver, with a size 20 cm × 16 cm × 11 cm. The internal density was heterogeneous, and liquid density and multiple enveloped calcifications could be observed; B: Arterial phase: the tumor parenchyma showed substantial and uniform enhancement; C: Portal vein phase: the tumor parenchyma did not show rapid subsidence and still showed higher densities.
