Tell Tale Heart

The Patient and the CT Scan
The patient is a 68 year old man with a past history of laparotomy that has left him with a colostomy bag. 
He has a history of a heart murmur,  but no other history of cardiac problems.  
He saw his doctor one week ago because of a painless left flank mass that was increasing rapidly in size.  His doctor ordered a CT scan of the abdomen, and then sent the patient to the Emergency Department (ED).
