  • Figure 1
    Chest X-ray

    Chest X-ray shows a peripheral opacity in the right lung with extrapleural lesion morphology. Rib involvement cannot be defined in this projection

     
    Area of Interest: Thoracic wall; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Dysplasias;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Rib X-ray

    Rib X-ray shows an expansile lytic lesion on a right rib.

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Dysplasias;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Chest MDTC

    Chest MDCT, soft tissue window, shows an expansile lytic rib lesion. It has an heterogeneous density inside, with no calcifications nor trabeculations. No soft-tissue mass associated.

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Computer Applications-Detection, diagnosis; Special Focus: Dysplasias;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Chest MDCT sagital view

    Chest MDCT, sagital view, shows the expansile lytic rib lesion with the pathological fracture associated (arrow)

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Computer Applications-Detection, diagnosis; Special Focus: Dysplasias;
