  • Figure 1

    A CT image showing the presence of a mediastinal mass with a hyperdense wall and a fat-like composition.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown;
     
     
  • Figure 2

    T2-weighted MR sequence showing the teratoma as being a moderately hypointense mass with a calcified wall and a heterogeneous fat-like composition.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown;
     
     
  • Figure 3

    A TRUF sequence image evidencing the heterogeneous and pseudocystic content of the mass.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown;
     
     
  • Figure 4

    A T1-weighted image more clearly showing the prevalent fatty composition of the teratoma.
