Radiologic imaging of the chest. a Chest X-ray showed a tumoral shadow at the right apex of the upper-lung field. b Computed tomography (CT) of the chest (pulmonary window): a 56 × 30 × 25-mm mass was identified at the right superior sulcus. c, d Coronal chest CT (mediastinal window): the mass was suspected to have invaded the chest wall at the right first and second intercostal space and the subclavian vein. e Sagittal chest CT before chemoradiotherapy (mediastinal window). f Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET). The mass showed a high FDG uptake (SUVmax 13.5). g Chest CT (pulmonary window) performed after chemoradiotherapy revealed the remarkable reduction of the tumor. h Sagittal chest CT after chemoradiotherapy (mediastinal window). The reduction of the mass to 19.5 mm in long diameter was recognized. In addition, it seemed that the contact between the tumor and the chest wall had been released
