Patient
female, 28 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Chest radiograph

    Chest radiograph shows right paracardiac consolidation of the middle lobe (silhouette sign), first thought to be consistent with lobar pneumonia.

     
    Area of Interest: Thorax; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Comparative studies; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    High-resolution chest CT

    High-resolution chest CT, axial lung window, demonstrates a right peribronchovascular consolidation with flame-shaped hilar radiation, and poorly defined lung nodules.

     
    Area of Interest: Thorax; Imaging Technique: CT-High Resolution; Procedure: Biopsy; Special Focus: AIDS;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    High-resolution chest CT

    High-resolution chest CT, axial mediastinal window, demonstrates soft tissue density around the mediastinal broncovascular structures with right hilar radiation and irregular outlines (flame shaped). Note that there...

     
    Area of Interest: Mediastinum; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Biopsy; Special Focus: AIDS;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    High-resolution chest CT

    High-resolution chest CT shows the same findings of Fig.3. in the coronal plane.
