CT scan helps to localize precisely, the cause of mediastinal widening. Ninety cases of mediastinal widening were taken up for the study. The various causes of widening were seen to be - lymphadenopathy (59%), Thymoma (10%), Vascular (7%), the rest (14%) and normal (10%). It is also possible to identify fairly accurately the aetiology of lymphadenopathy whether granulomatous or malignant by demonstrating calcification, central necrosis and matting, CT scanning proves useful in accurate placement to the needle aspiration cytology of mediastinal tissue.
