  • Figure 1
    Contrast medium examination of oesophagus

    Diverticulum in the distal third of oesophagus.

     
    Area of Interest: Oesophagus; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Barium enema; Special Focus: Diverticula;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Contrast medium examination of oesophagus

    Contrast medium transit from left dorsal circumference of the distal third of the oesophagus to the bronchial system. The broad fistula shows good filling and clearing of contrast medium.

     
    Area of Interest: Oesophagus; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Barium enema; Special Focus: Fistula;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    CT of thorax (mediastinal window)

    Confirmation of a left-sided diverticulum.

     
    Area of Interest: Thorax; Imaging Technique: CT;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    CT of thorax (mediastinal window) after iv contrast administration

    Fistula from the diverticulum to a segmental bronchus of left lower lobe. Dilated esophagus without signs of an infiltrative process.

     
    Area of Interest: Oesophagus; Imaging Technique: CT;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    CT of thorax (pulmonary window)

    The segmental bronchus affected by the fistula is bronchiectatic and has a thickened wall.
