Ultrasound images The hepatic lipoma is a relatively rare, benign hepatic tumour which is very similar in nature and acoustic appearance to focal fatty change. It differs in that it is a discrete tumour of fatty deposition rather than an infiltrative process and so can exert a mass effect on surrounding vessels if large. The fat content makes the lipoma hyperechoic compared to the surrounding liver tissue.
