30 years old male patient treated from lymphoma.
Note hepatic fatty infiltration outside path of radiation port.
Two patterns in imaging of liver after radiotherapy are encountered:
1. Fatty infiltration in path of port.
2. Fatty infiltration outside path of port.
The later is encountered in chronic radiation injury or what is called radiation-induced hepatitis. The chronic radiation effect at path of port inhibiting fatty infiltration in this area and fatty infiltration occurs outside that path.
Note also in this patient a splenule and left lumbar mal-rotated kidney.
