Thymic tumors are rare neoplasms even if they are the most common primary neoplasm of the anterior mediastinum. In the era of advanced imaging modalities, such as functional MRI, dual-energy CT, perfusion CT and radiomics, it is possible to improve characterization of thymic epithelial tumors and other mediastinal tumors, assessment of tumor invasion into adjacent structures and detection of secondary lymph nodes and metastases. This review aims to illustrate the actual state of the art in diagnostic imaging of thymic lesions, describing imaging findings of thymoma and differential diagnosis.

Abstract

Thymic tumors are rare neoplasms even if they are the most common primary neoplasm of the anterior mediastinum. In the era of advanced imaging modalities, such as functional MRI, dual-energy CT, perfusion CT and radiomics, it is possible to improve characterization of thymic epithelial tumors and other mediastinal tumors, assessment of tumor invasion into adjacent structures and detection of secondary lymph nodes and metastases. This review aims to illustrate the actual state of the art in diagnostic imaging of thymic lesions, describing imaging findings of thymoma and differential diagnosis.
