Patient
female, 60 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    CT examination

    Axial CT scan shows colon segments, mesentery and a solid tumor in the right hemithorax. The heart is displaced to the left.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT examination;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    MR imaging
     

    Axial T2-weighted fast spin echo image (TR/TE:1800/100) shows the low signal intensity mass and the gas containing bowel segment confined in the mesenteric fat tissue in the right hemithorax.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MR imaging;

    Coronal T1-weighted gradient echo image (TR/TE/flip angle:15/2.8/20)shows the contiguity of the hernia sac and the liver.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MR imaging;

    Sagittal T1-weighted gradient echo image (TR/TE/flip angle:15/2.8/20)better delineates the upward herniation of the bowel segments into the thorax.
