Caption: Liver cirrhosis. Coloured axial computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen of a patient with cirrhosis of the liver (orange area, upper part of image). Dilated blood vessels (coloured red) are caused by hypertension in the hepatic portal vein and are characteristic of cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver as a result of long-term liver damage. This can be caused by alcohol abuse or liver disease such as viral hepatitis, as in this case. Symptoms include tiredness, oedema (fluid build-up in the body), weight loss, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin). Cirrhosis cannot be reversed. Treatment is by stopping the progression of the disease, or by carrying out a liver transplant.
