Abnormal Bones, Soft Tissue, and Other Findings
There are times when pathological processes occur outside the lungs and mediastinum, i.e., in the chest wall, to include bones and soft tissues. This is why we include these structures on the search pattern, in that one must think about those structures separately to deduce their potential involvement. I will also include a short synopsis of lines and tubes often seen in the ICU; they are easier to navigate than most think.
