    CXR
     

    PA views shows subtle increase in soft tissue on the right side in superior mediastinum. Note pleural reaction at right base.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CXR;

    Soft tissue mass is seen as anterior mediastinal shadow on lateral radiograph.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CXR;

    CECT of thorax

    Unenhancing soft tissue density mass is seen in the anterior mediastinum on the right side.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CECT of thorax;

    Discrete mass isointense to soft tissue is seen on T1-weighted coronal scan.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MR images of the cest;

    Sagittal image demonstrates anterior mediastinal location of mass.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MR images of the cest;

    T1-weighted axial scan clearly demonstrates soft tissue mass breaching pericardium, indicating its invasive nature.
