Interpretation:

Technetium sulphur colloid liver scan done 3/6/91 reveals a grossly abnormal configuration to the liver, appearing larger in the lateral projection of the liver in both the anterior and the lateral projection of the liver, appearing larger in the lateral projection than it does in the anterior. There is a central decrease in tracer localization compatible with a space-occupying lesion. There is a gross irregularity of the liver at the porta hepatis which is consistent with either space-occupying lesions of the liver in this area or possibly extrinsic compression from such things as enlarged lymph nodes.

Impression:

Definitely abnormal liver scan consistent with a central lesion as well as irregularity along the right lower margin. The possibility of metastatic disease is high.
