Cool CT Stuff....
50-ish male with diagnosis of colon cancer about 2 years ago. He declined treatment at that time so he could "go off and drink". He returns now with severe anemia with a hemoglobin of 4.5. He is now amenable to surgery. A CT was obtained to evaluate his liver:

Chock-full o'mets, as expected. But an interesting finding more superiorly:

Clot marked in yellow.
Pretty cool, huh?
