Core Tip

Core Tip: Hepatic hemangioblastoma is mostly huge in size, and images of flow void vessels within the tumor can be seen on T2-weighted imaging, and enlarged peripheral blood-supplying vessels and progressive enhancement seem to be typical imaging features of hepatic hemangioblastoma. However, a solid significantly enhanced mass with a low signal on diffusion-weighted imaging and a high signal on apparent diffusion coefficient may also be helpful for the diagnosis of hepatic hemangioblastoma.
