  • Figure 1
    Chest radiograph
     

    Postero-anterior chest radiograph shows a homogeneous, well-defined opacity in the right lower lobe (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Thorax; Imaging Technique: Plain radiographic studies; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Infection;

    Lateral view shows a mass in the right lower lobe, abutting the major fissure anteriorly (arrow) and the diaphragm inferiorly.

     
    Area of Interest: Thorax; Imaging Technique: Plain radiographic studies; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Infection;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Thoracic Computed Tomography
     

    Unenhanced CT axial image shows a well-defined hypoattenuated mass (<20UH) in the right lower lobe, with irregular borders (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Thorax; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Infection;

    Contrast-enhanced CT axial image demonstrates a low attenuated (<20UH) heterogeneous mass in the right lower lobe, with peripheral enhancement (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Thorax; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Infection;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Abdominal Computed Tomography
     

    Unenhanced CT shows a large well-defined cystic lesion in the right hepatic lobe with peripheral calcified capsule (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Infection;

    Contrast-enhanced CT, shows a well-defined heterogeneous cystic lesion (arrow) in the left hepatic lobe with hyperdense internal detached membranes.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Infection;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Computed Tomography - coronal reconstruction

    Contrast-enhanced coronal reconstruction shows pulmonary (white arrow) and hepatic (black arrow) cystic masses. The liver cyst shows peripheral ring enhancement and unattached internal cyst membranes, at the superior...
