Significantly, the results of studies of native,we not can exclude invasion into vessels, as well as trombosis superior vena cava. Cellular tissue mediastinal is tightened, the countours of the braciocephalic, the superior vena cava blurred, their contents heightened density. In the pleural cavity on both sides is determined by the content, density -15...+20 HU. The small amout of pericardial fluid content. The lymph nodes of the mediastinum to the size of 1.6 cm.
