      What is cirrhotic (sic) nodules?
      ~~Cirrhosis is marked by the development of pseudo-lobules which replace the original lobular structure of the liver. These regenerate further and appear as nodules over the liver surface.

      What is tissues composed of regenerative nodules

      ~~Mostly reticulin and fibrous tissue along with some liver cells and blood vessels.

      What are focal lesions?

      ~~When liver damage is restricted to discrete areas of the liver and is not confluent, it is described as a focal lesion.

      What is a small calcified granuloma in the right lobe?

      ~~When an old lesion in the liver like an inflammation gets calcium deposition , it becomes a calcified lesion. These may be seen in tuberculosis.

      What are portal tracts and hepatic nodules?

      ~~Portal tracts are the channels in between a liver lobule carrying the blood vessels to and fro from the liver.
      Hepatic nodule is any nodule in the liver, like a small organsied lump with well defined margins for example a regenerating nodule or a small liver tumor.


      I know lots of questions. Thanks-Cher

      ~~There will always be questions, keep asking.
      Hope this helps.
