Click 60 year-old woman with voriconazole-induced periostitis following heart transplant. Axial noncontrast CT image at presentation (A) demonstrates fluffy, irregular periosteal new bone formation along the posterolateral aspect of the left 5th through 7th ribs. (GE LightSpeed16 Slice CT Scanner, 120 kVp, slice thickness = 2.5 mm. CTDIvol (mGy) = 1.75, DLP (mGy-cm) = 48.63).

Click 60 year-old woman with voriconazole-induced periostitis following heart transplant. Axial noncontrast CT image four months following discontinuation of voriconazole demonstrates that the periostitis has completely resolved. (GE LightSpeed VCT Scanner, 120 kVp = 120, mAs = 39, slice thickness = 2.5 mm. CTDIvol (mGy) = 1.29, DLP (mGy-cm) = 43.30, 30% adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction (ASIR)).
