2 Pericardial Fat Pad Loss of clarity of the cardiophrenic angle may result from a pericardial fat pad. This is often inseparable from the mediastinum, but should be of relatively lower density, being made up of fat, rather than muscle (Fig. 13). The heart border should be preserved. It is often also present on previous imaging. 13. Left-sided pericardial fat pad. 3 Pectus Excavatum The chest wall shape created by pectus excavatum will alter how the mediastinal contour projects. There is loss of the right heart border and the anterior ribs generally appear more vertical than usual (Fig.
Vessels can often be traced more distally and are generally of a tapering appearance. Occasionally if the initial film was performed AP, a repeat film in a PA projection can be helpful, and comparison with old films is often useful. Again if uncertainty persists, a CT scan will help. 44 Chapter 3. 11. Bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy. 1 Middle Mediastinum and Hilar Regions 45 While bilateral hilar lymph node enlargement is a classical feature of sarcoidosis, other conditions such as lymphoma and metastatic disease will need to be considered.
8. Dextrocardia in this case with situs inversus, note rightsided stomach bubble. 42 Chapter 3. 9. Right-sided aortic arch seen as a well-defined structure within the right paratracheal space (arrow). 1 Unilateral Hilar Mass The appearance of the hilar regions should be roughly symmetrical. Asymmetry may indicate a focal mass. A relatively tapering appearance to the abnormality is suggestive of a vascular origin, which includes conditions such as a unilateral pulmonary artery aneurysm. Loss of clarity of the hilar bay or angle is much more suggestive of a soft tissue abnormality, including enlargement of lymph nodes.
