Abstract: Conclusion: In the hard-to-image anterior mediastinal region,
noninvasive imaging techniques (DWI- and DCE-MRI) might provide
additional information for preoperative lesion characterization
and assessment of lesion resectability. Volume and especially
heterogeneity of the mediastinal lesion seem to preclude a simple
whole-lesion delineation for diagnosis, but a combination of DWI
and visual DCE-interpretation, or a targeted zone delineation allow
better accuracies
