Abstract

A wide spectrum of solid tumors can develop in the mediastinum of adults. Like for any other tumor evaluation, the location and morphology play equally important role for lesion characterization. Compartmentalizing the mediastinal masses greatly narrows the number of possible differential diagnosis. Cross sectional imaging mainly with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are the preferred modalities of choice as they can establish the presence, location and morphology of the lesion allowing to suggest a possible diagnosis.
