Answer

Answer

US remains operator dependent, and the anterior mediastinum may not be accessible because of the thoracic bony cage. In common with cross-sectional imaging, tissue diagnosis may not be possible, because the differential diagnosis of solid, cystic, and complex mediastinal masses is wide.
