  • Figure 2
    CECT Thorax
     

    Axial section at the level of aortic arch showing anterior mediastinal cystic lesion with clear fluid density (0 to 10HU) contents and thin imperceptible walls located in the midline and left paramedian location

     
    Area of Interest: Mediastinum; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Complications; Special Focus: Cysts;

    Axial section at the level of right pulmonary artery showing the cystic lesion insinuating into the mediastinum with subsegmental compression atelectasis of the adjacent lung and mild left pleural effusion

     
    Area of Interest: Mediastinum; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Complications; Special Focus: Cysts;

    Axial section at the level of aortic root showing the anterior mediastinal cystic lesion closely apposing the cardiac margin and mild left pleural effusion of attenuation value 0 to 10HU
