Fleischner Society: glossary of terms for thoracic imaging.
Members of the Fleischner Society compiled a glossary of terms for thoracic imaging that replaces previous glossaries published in 1984 and 1996 for thoracic radiography and computed tomography (CT),
Severity of acute pulmonary embolism: evaluation of a new spiral CT angiographic score in correlation with echocardiographic data
The CT severity score evaluated in the present study enables quantitative assessment of acute PE severity on spiral CT angiograms, readily applicable in routine clinical practice.
Diagnosis of pulmonary embolism with spiral CT: comparison with pulmonary angiography and scintigraphy.
Spiral CT can reliably depict central PE and may be introduced into the classic diagnostic algorithms, and CT demonstrated central PE in two patients with normal V-P scans.
Central pulmonary thromboembolism: diagnosis with spiral volumetric CT with the single-breath-hold technique--comparison with pulmonary angiography.
In one case of normal pulmonary angiographic findings, asymmetry in pulmonary arterial perfusion was misinterpreted as pulmonary embolism with spiral volumetric CT, which can reliably depict thromboemboli in second- to fourth-division pulmonary vessels.
Helical CT angiography of thoracic outlet syndrome: functional anatomy.
Helical CT shows significant narrowing of the costoclavicular space after postural maneuver in symptomatic patients.
Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations: evaluation with CT of the chest before and after treatment.
Computed tomography enabled noninvasive evaluation of patients unable to undergo treatment and detection of PAVMS in family members and progressive aneurysmal retraction was associated with successful occlusion.
Ectopic origin of bronchial arteries: assessment with multidetector helical CT angiography
The purpose of this study was to determine non-invasively the frequency of ectopic bronchial arteries originating at a level of the descending aorta other than T5-T6 or from any aortic collateral vessel obtained in patients with hemoptysis.
CT angiography of thoracic outlet syndrome: evaluation of imaging protocols for the detection of arterial stenosis.
Thoracic outlet arterial compression is best depicted with the injection of a 30% contrast agent and reconstruction of VR images.
Multi-detector row CT of hemoptysis.
Multi-detector row CT angiography permits noninvasive, rapid, and accurate assessment of the cause and consequences of hemorrhage into the airways and helps guide subsequent management.
Lung changes in rheumatoid arthritis: CT findings.
CT may be a useful noninvasive tool for recognition of RA-associated lung disease with special emphasis on bronchial and bronchiolar changes.
