Six patients were reviewed who had renal angiomyolipoma (1.2-4.0 cm) in which only minimal amounts of fat were evident on CT. The fat content of the lesion was appreciated because tissue attenuation measurements of small areas of low attenuation within the tumors were performed and because thin-section (5-mm) and nonenhanced CT scans were used. The fat content of the lesions could be identified on 10-mm sections in three cases but only on 5-mm sections in three others. In two cases, fat was… CONTINUE READING
