Answer

The modalities used to aid in the diagnosis of hepatic hemangiomas include ultrasonography, dynamic contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scanning, nuclear medicine studies using technetium-99m (99m Tc)–labeled red blood cells (RBCs), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), hepatic arteriography, and digital subtraction angiography (DSA).
