CT evaluation of cardiophrenic angle lymph nodes in patients with malignant lymphoma

CT evaluation of cardiophrenic angle lymph nodes in patients with malignant lymphoma

Ajr. American Journal of Roentgenology 143(4): 719-721

Two hundred seventy-four computed tomographic (CT) scans of the thorax were obtained in 209 patients with malignant lymphoma (153 Hodgkin disease and 56 non-Hodgkin lymphoma). Fourteen patients (6.6%) were shown to have adenopathy involving the cardiophrenic angle lymph nodes on CT. Of these, only three were considered positive on the basis of chest radiography alone. The anatomy of these diaphragmatic lymph nodes and CT appearance of these nodes when pathologically enlarged are discussed.
