CT has been one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century. In the right pair of hands, it can do wonders to a suffering patient. The time is not far where CT diagnosis will be considered a gold standard for the diagnosis of the thoracic lesions. Presently, the final diagnosis as a rule should be considered after taking histopathological confirmation. This study puts in a sincere effort to study and understand the signs of thoracic lesions and compare this data with that of the histopathological confirmation.
