Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging diagnosis of thymic cyst

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A case of mediastinal thymic cyst evaluated by computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging is presented. The anterior mediastinal mass was well-demarcated and measured 10 Hounsfield units on the computed tomographic scan. The lesion showed intermediate signal intensity on T1-weighting and became hyperintense on T2-weighted images. These computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging features suggested a cystic structure, which proved to be a benign thymic cyst on pathologic examination.
