Patient
female, 29 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Posteroanterior chest X-ray

    A well-circumscribed lesion in the lower left lung lobe.

     
    Area of Interest: Respiratory system; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Computer Applications-General; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Lateral chest X-ray

    This view confirms that the posterior location and obtuse edges favour a pleural or chest wall based lesion.

     
    Area of Interest: Respiratory system; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Computer Applications-Detection, diagnosis; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Axial enhanced CT examination (venous phase)

    Notice a vascular pleurally-based lesion causing adjacent rib destruction.

     
    Area of Interest: Respiratory system; Imaging Technique: CT-High Resolution; Procedure: Computer Applications-Detection, diagnosis; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Dorsal column MRI

    Axial view. A polylobulated and well-defined lesion. On this sequence (T1-weighted) is hypointense.

     
    Area of Interest: Respiratory system; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Computer Applications-Detection, diagnosis; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Dorsal column MRI

    Coronal view. On T2-weighted sequence, the lesion is heterogeneous and predominantly hyperintense.
