  • Figure 1
    Chest radiograph
     

    PA chest radiograph shows a round - oval mass that obscures the right cardiophrenic angle.

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiac; Mediastinum; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;

    Chest radiograph - lateral view

     
    Area of Interest: Mediastinum; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    CT

    Contrast enhanced CT on axial plane and in soft window shows a thin-walled, sharply defined, oval, homogeneous mass measuring approx. 7 x 7 cm in diameter in right costophrenic angle.

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiac; Mediastinum; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    CT

    Contrast enhanced CT axial plane in soft window shows a thin-walled, sharply defined, oval, homogeneous mass measuring approx. 7 x 7 cm in diameter in right costophrenic angle. Its attenuation is near that of water.
