Abstract

ABSTRACT: A 54-year-old man with hepatocellular carcinoma from alcohol-induced cirrhosis presented with hepatic encephalopathy and refractory ascites related to decompensated liver disease. MRI confirmed disease progression adjacent the site of prior radiofrequency ablation, performed 2 years prior, with associated right hepatic vein tumor thrombus. 99mTc-labeled macroaggregated albumin lung shunt imaging performed before 90Y radioembolization identified a left lower lobe wedge-shaped defect, confirmed as pulmonary embolism on CT pulmonary angiography and MRI.
