Abstract

OBJECTIVE. We sought to report the unusual distribution of radiation-induced injury to the liver in patients with mesothelioma after extrapleural pneumonectomy and intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). CONCLUSION. Abnormal hepatic enhancement after extrapleural pneumonectomy and IMRT is common in patients with mesothelioma. Knowledge of the early occurrence and typical location and appearance of IMRT-induced injury can be useful in preventing misinterpretation as metastatic disease or recurrent tumor.
