Computed tomography (CT) has played an important role in improving our knowledge of the pathophysiology of the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and in determining the morphological and functional relationships of different manoeuvres commonly used in the therapeutic management of this syndrome (changes in body position, application of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and mechanical ventilation). During the early phase of the disease, the ARDS lung is characterized by a… CONTINUE READING
