Dutch term or phrase: hematoom waarin een spiegel zichtbaar is.
Deze patient heeft een zeer groot hematoom in de thoraxwand en in het CT rapport komt de volgende zin voor: "Grootste hematoom heeft een afmeting van 14 x 11 cm, waarin een spiegel zichtbaar is". Wat betekent hier de spiegel? Alvast bedankt!

Explanation:
Hello...I am not familiar with this term in this context and as said, a professional or even a physician would be your best bet in translating this. I have found one document where a "spiegel" is discovered in the maxillary sinuses. By googling further with "spiegels in
de sinus maxillares" I came across a lot of German documents; as I don't read German I couldn't research further, but this association may help you. My hunch is that in this context, a huge hematoma containg fluid is showing some level of fluid reflecting light visible on the CT. Again, I am not sure but it may be a helpful push in the right direction.

Reference information:
Mosterd geeft: 1. mirrow; 2. speculum [instrument]; 3. level; 4. concentration [lab.]. Vertalingen 1 en 2 zijn hier m.i. duidelijk niet van toepassing. Ik neem aan dat de juiste interpretatie uit de context zal blijken. Misschien ook voer voor de echte specialisten onder ons.

Reference: Mirror image/artifact

Reference information:
If you look up 'hematoma' together with 'mirror' on Google, you find the term 'mirror-image' or 'mirror-artifact' in this context. This seems to be a side effect of the imaging technique. So Vert-ical's suggestion of 'reflection' is pretty close. See for example:

"The mirror image artifacts of the transverse and descending thoracic aorta give the appearance of a double-barrel aorta and were shown in vitro to be caused by the aorta-lung interface, which acts as a total reflector of ultrasound."

agree  xxxVert-ical Tr: Thank you, very interesting; r"eflection'"+"hematoma" retrieves hits on Google as well, which leads me to believe this is accepted terminology. Again, confirmation from a medical professional is warranted in this case.
