CT scan may be helpful in the diagnosis of bronchogenic cyst.


CT scan may be helpful in the diagnosis of bronchogenic cyst. The density of bronchogenic cysts is variable from water density to high density due to blood, anthracotic pigment, increased calcium content, or increased protein content of the fluid.[1][2] Findings on CT scan suggestive of bronchogenic cyst is an
