Right supraclavicular region 1 25.1 × 14.2 46/70 Necrosis in the center of the lymph node
Anterior mediastinum >10 40.1 × 36.6 40/86 Necrosis in the adhesion and fusion regions of lymph nodes
Posterior mediastinum >10 37.2 × 47.3 48/95 Inhomogeneous density in the adhesion and fusion regions of lymph nodes
Left axilla 5–6 27.1 × 23.3 36/70 Necrosis in the adhesion and fusion regions of lymph nodes
