Computed tomography (CT) is used to detect emphysematous changes in the lungs of living patients. It is therefore important to develop a standard method for the radiographic quantification of emphysematous lesions using CT. The authors determine the best CT scanning methods for assessing the degree of pulmonary emphysema. Computed tomography scanning was performed in 85 consecutive patients with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Scans were obtained using 2-mm or 5-mm collimation, at… CONTINUE READING
