A popular term for a radiologic finding seen in a sagittal CT through a right sided diaphragmatic rupture. Here, a small rounded mass of liver herniates into the right thoracic cavity, whilst the rest of the liver remains in the abdominal cavity, an appearance which has been fancifully likened to a cottage loaf of bread.
