CHEST Findings: There is an enhancing, high left paratracheal nodule measuring 1.4 x 0.9 cm, previously 1.5 x 0.9 cm, and subjectively unchanged. This lies lateral to the esophagus. The mediastinum and hila are otherwise normal and there is no other adenopathy. The thoracic spine, ribs, clavicles, sternum, scapulae, and visualized portions of the proximal humeri are unremarkable. The lungs are normal. The trachea and central airways are normal.

ABDOMEN Findings: The liver and gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, and adrenal glands are normal. The kidneys and proximal ureters are normal. The colon and small bowel are normal.
