Cat Scan

Was wondering if anyone knows what focal fatty replacement adjacent to the falciform ligament means.  And what accessory splenic tissue is between the spleen and the tip of the pancreas.  This is what was shown on my cat scan.

focal fatty replacement adjacent to the falciform ligament = fat in the liver or near gallbladder

magnetic resonance imaging using T1-weighted gradient-echo and T2-weighted Turbo spin-echo sequences with spectral fat suppression can better determine if these are fat or other soft tissue

accessory splenic tissue = Accessory spleens are congenital and arise from the left side of the dorsal mesogastrium during the embryological period of development.  They are found in up to 40% of autopsies, and are thought to be a normal anatomic variant.
