Spinnaker sail

Case contributed by Dr Ian Bickle


For illustration purposes.


Case Discussion

Spinnaker has been used in two radiological sign contexts.

1.  In pneumomediastininum in the neonate on chest x-ray

2.  In vocal cord paralysis on CT chest

Both assigned this name due to the shape of the pathology being like the shape of a spinnaker sail.
