Radiology Cases of Post Radiation Scoliosis

CXR of post radiation scoliosis
CXR AP (left) taken as an infant shows a round left-sided soft tissue mass that was in the posterior mediastinum and found to be neuroblastoma that was subsequently treated in part with radiation therapy. CXR AP (right) taken 17 years later shows a curvature of the upper thoracic spine convex to the right.
CXR of post radiation scoliosis
CXR AP shows a mild curvature of the thoracolumbar spine convex to the left. Several calcifications are seen projecting over the liver.
