Ultrasound can differentiate solid and cystic lesions in most cases Characteristically, on USG the cyst appears as an anechoic mass with thin walls and septations or irregular walls. There are calcific foci in case of complex cysts. Calcifications are useful to differentiate cysts from other causes of splenomegaly CT and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may give guidelines, with regard to the morphology of cyst, the nature of fluid, the exact location and its relationship with adjacent structures On T1-weighted MRI images, the cyst is hypointense while on T2, it is hyperintense, with intensity of signal equal to water without reinforcement after contrast injection. However, the signal intensity may be elevated according to contents in the cyst, e.g., signal intensity on T1 can be increased in case of a hemorrhagic cys
