Bochdalek's diaphragmatic hernia (hernia through trigonum lumbocostale of diaphragm) may be demonstrated unequivocally via computerised tomography. An additional scan in prone position is recommended. In this way, not only the relationship of the hernia to the diaphragm can be shown but also the diaphragmatic gap (trigonum lumbocostale). In some cases sagittal image reconstruction is helpful to identify the hernia.

Chest mass in a patient with gastric cancer.
A 71-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital for gastric surgery and a mass in the posterior costophrenic angle was demonstrated, considered to be extrapulmonic because of the stripelike areas of decreased density along the convexity of the stomach.
