Figure 1.
Figure 1. Cirrhotic liver morphology. Multiple low-attenuation foci in the liver (likely treated metastases). Necrotic foci in the peripancreatic space.
Figure 2.
Figure 2. Severely dilated right atrium and ventricle.
Figure 3.
Figure 3. Right ventricle (RV) severely dilated. RV systolic tissue Doppler velocity is 9.0 cm/s. The estimated right ventricular systolic pressure is 43 mm Hg consistent with mild pulmonary hypertension (but may be underestimated due to severe tricuspid regurgitation).

Figure 5. Status post valves replacement. Biocor prosthetic tricuspid valve size #33. Biocor prosthetic pulmonary valve size #27. There is no prosthetic regurgitation.
