Welcome to e health forum.

Possible conditions that can present as a combination of hypodense and hyperdense areas within the liver include - liver abscess, hemangiomas, hepatomas(hepatocellular cancers), hepatic adenomas, liver cysts or metastatic deposits within the liver.

The exact condition can be determined by assessing the complete medical history, laboratory tests and reading the appearance on the CT scan.

Hence it would be recommended that you consult with your doctor and seek proper medical opinion.

I hope this helps.
