    Computed Tomography
     

    A CT image of the right shoulder showing a lytic lesion with thinning and disruption of the cortex, with no discernible sclerotic border in the body of the right scapula. A button sequestra is depicted in the lytic...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Computed Tomography;

    A CT image of the left shoulder showing a lytic lesion in the body of the left scapula with imaging characteristics similar to the contralateral side.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Computed Tomography;

    A CT image of the upper thorax showing bilateral lytic lesions in the scapulae.

    Computed Tomography
     

    A CT image of the lungs revealing the presence of multiple pulmonary nodules in the upper lobes.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Computed Tomography;

    HRCT (High Resolution Computed Tomography) of the lungs showing cavitation in some of the pulmonary nodules.
