Abstract

A 49 year old man with previous history of colectomy for colon cancer was referred to our department for further evaluation of suspicious hepatic lesions noticed during an abdominal CT scan. 99mTc-RBC scan revealed multiple hot spots in the region of the liver, correlating to the CT and liver-spleen scan. Further follow-ups of the patient revealed no remarkable change in the size or number of the hepatic lesions. The diagnosis of multiple hemangiomas with high probability was made. The usefulness of RBC scan in differential diagnosis of hepatic lesions is reviewed.
