Aquino, Suzanne L.; Duncan, Gregory; Taber, Katherine H.; Sharma, Amita; Hayman, L. Anne

Collapse Box


The mediastinum is a complex region that is variously subdivided by radiologists, surgeons and anatomists. This paper describes the most popular of these classifications and color-codes the radiologic and surgical divisions on 22 labeled axial sections of the chest. This allows the reader to quickly name the appropriate location of a lesion on any section.
