    Anteroposterior spine chest radiography

    Anteroposterior spine chest radiography indicated compression of the right lung with massive pleural effusion and a mass (arrow) in the left lung base.

    Contrast-enhanced CT of the chest
     

    Contrast-enhanced CT of the chest (mediastinal window setting) shows right hemothorax and a heterogeneously enhanced solid nodular lesion (arrow) in the collapsed parenchyma of the right lung.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Contrast-enhanced CT of the chest;

    Contrast-enhanced CT of the chest (mediastinal window setting) shows a well-defined, heterogeneously enhanced solid nodular lesion in wide contact with the posterior pleura in the left lower lobe.

    Unenhanced CT of the chest

    Unenhanced CT of the chest (mediastinal window setting) after thoracic drainage and continuous aspiration, obtained on hospital day 5. Hemothorax was slightly improved (c.f. Fig. 2a), and a mass lesion (arrow) was...
