Post-embolization image:

In this image, small low-density lesions are shown in segment IV — one lesion in the periphery. The lesions are approximately two centimeters. Another lesion is in the periphery of the right lobe, maybe in segment VIII. The linear low-density images are probably not related to the tumor but are likely related to the embolization. The falciform fissure divides segment IV from the lateral left lobe, and no abnormality is shown.

Interestingly, it looks as though we have a primary cecal tumor with local-regional lymphadenopathy and metastatic disease. Of course, these lymph nodes could be inflamed.
