  • Figure 1
    PA and lateral thoracic X-ray scans.
     

    A PA thoracic X-ray image that shows a high-density mass located on the right hemithorax with an approximate size of 10--12 cm.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: thoracic x-ray PA and lateral;

    A lateral X-ray image showing the extrapulmonary origin of the mass.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: thoracic x-ray PA and lateral;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    A thoracic CT scan obtained using an intravenous contrast
     

    Thoracic CT image: soft tissue mass with no significant enhancement located on the right hemithorax, penetrating the thoracic wall. No bone destruction is seen.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Thoracic CT with intravenous contrast;

    Thoracic CT image: The mass goes through the vertebral foramen.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Thoracic CT with intravenous contrast;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    MR axial and sagittal T2 images of the dorsal spine
     

    An axial T2 image showing a hiperintense voluminous pre and paravertebral neoformation that goes through the vertebral foramen.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Dorsal spine MR axial and sagital T2;

    A sagittal T2 image: The hiperintense mass goes through several vertebral foramens.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Dorsal spine MR axial and sagital T2;

    An axial T2 image: The mass fundamentally affects the paravertebral soft tissues. There is no medullary component clearly seen.
