Certain diseases show classic radiological signs that resemble various types of food items like fruits, meat, vegetables, eggs, bakery, grocery and confectionary items. In this article various food signs are discussed and correlated with the various food items in a pictorial way. The objective of this pictorial essay is to provide the information and learn the characteristic radiological signs resembling various food items. These food signs are easy to recognize and allows a confident diagnosis on the basis of imaging findings alone or can narrow down the differential diagnosis. This pattern is often seen with pulmonary tuberculosis Fig 1c. The other differential diagnosis of miliary shadowing includes fungal infections, inhalational diseases, sarcoidosis, eosinophilic granuloma, and metastatic disease particularly from thyroid tumors, melanoma, and choriocarcinoma.

На крыше главного служебного здания АНБ вырос лес из более чем пятисот антенн, среди которых были две большие антенны, закрытые обтекателями, похожими на громадные мячи для гольфа.
