Patient
male, 30 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Oesophagogram x-ray

    Oesophagogram x-ray shows a diverticular dilatation located in the middle third of the oesophagus.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Oesophagogram x-ray;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Spiral CT evaluation
     

    Axial CT scan confirms the presence of a diverticulum.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Spiral CT evaluation;

    Coronal CT demonstrates the diverticulum extension.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Spiral CT evaluation;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Spiral CT and virtual endoscopy evaluation
     

    Sagittal 3D reconstruction shows the absence of neoplastic transformation in the lumen of the diverticulum.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Spiral CT and virtual endoscopy evaluation;

    Virtual endoscopy shows the orifice of the diverticulum.
