Emphysema is characterized by enlargement of the alveoli, which is the most important parameter to assess the presence and severity of this disease. Alveolar enlargement is primarily defined on morphological criteria; therefore, characterization of this disease with morphological parameters is a prerequisite to study the pathogenesis. For this purpose… CONTINUE READING
