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), respectively. The need to update the previous versions came from the recognition that new words have emerged, others have become obsolete, and the meaning of some terms has changed. Brief descriptions of some diseases are included, and pictorial examples (chest radiographs and CT scans) are… Expand

TLDR
This review provides an updated German glossary of terms for thoracic imaging that closely adheres to the Fleischner Society terminology and presents a German adaption of this glossary. Expand
Glossary of terms in thoracic imaging and clinical-radiological correlation. What every radiologist should know.
Poster: "ECR 2012 / C-1565 / Glossary of terms in thoracic imaging and clinical-radiological correlation. What every radiologist should know." by: "A. Moreno Pastor1, A. Sanchez Gonzalez1, M. L.Expand
Illustrated Brazilian consensus of terms and fundamental patterns in chest CT scans.
TLDR
This new Brazilian consensus is to update and to continue the standardization of the principal terms and fundamental patterns in chest CT scans in Portuguese. Expand
Chest Including Lungs and Mediastinum
TLDR
The common pitfalls encountered in the chest radiography and chest computed tomography (CT) are reviewed and the common misinterpretations, misses, and mimics encountered are described. Expand
Imaging of Pulmonary Nodules
TLDR
In certain cases, CT can provide additional clues for the underlying diseases accounting for pulmonary nodules and may range from follow-up CT to percutaneous CT-guided intervention. Expand
An Inspirational All-Around Survey on Ground Glass Opacities
In the last decade, with the advent of computed tomography screening for lung cancer, the number of Ground-Glass Opacity (GGO) nodules detected and referred for diagnosis and management has beenExpand
Computed tomography assessment of peripheral traction bronchiolectasis: impact of minimal intensity projection
TLDR
Improving the distinction between honeycombing and peripheral traction bronchiolectasis may be critical, especially when the clinical likelihood of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is uncertain. Expand
Patterns and Signs in Thoracic Imaging
The imaging appearances of pulmonary pathologies can be classified into various patterns for the ease of description and to narrow down the differential diagnoses. Imaging pattern refers to a findingExpand
Correlative anatomy for the mediastinum.
TLDR
The mediastinal anatomy is described, correlating the findings of plain radiography, CT, and MRI with those of magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasonography, and positron emission tomography. Expand
Lobar collapse demystified: the chest radiograph with CT correlation
TLDR
The basics of chest radiograph interpretation are reviewed, concentrating on the concepts of radiographic density and the silhouette sign, and the signs of collapse that are specific to the different lobes of the lung are reviewed. Expand

Glossary of terms for thoracic radiology: recommendations of the Nomenclature Committee of the Fleischner Society.
TLDR
The Glossary was originally proposed at the first general meeting of the Society of 1971 in the belief that standardization of terms with respect to the description of radiographic findings would facilitate the exchange of information and is now judged to be sufficiently inclusive to be of general interest. Expand
Bronchiectasis: CT evaluation.
TLDR
In an effort to improve overall diagnostic accuracy, a wide range of CT appearances of this protean disorder are reviewed, and potential problems and technical pitfalls that may arise in routine clinical imaging are emphasized. Expand
Signs in thoracic imaging.
TLDR
This pictorial essay discusses 23 classic roentgenographic signs used in thoracic imaging to be used as an educational review for residents, whether they are beginning their training or preparing for certification exams, and serve as a refresher and a reference to the practicing radiologist. Expand
Centrilobular emphysema: CT-pathologic correlation.
TLDR
Preliminary data suggest that CLE can be reliably identified and quantified with current CT scanners and suggest that lung destruction was correctly identified in 13 of 15 cases. Expand
Diffuse panbronchiolitis: evaluation with high-resolution CT.
TLDR
High-resolution computed tomography is useful in the evaluation of both the location and severity of the lesions and revealed that the classification based on CT findings reflected the clinical stages and pathologic process of diffuse panbronchiolitis. Expand
Imaging Evaluation of Obstructive Atelectasis
TLDR
The major applications of CT and MRI, as well as the capabilities and limitations of both techniques, in the evaluation of patients with obstructive atelectasis are reviewed. Expand
Radiographic Manifestations of Lobar Atelectasis
TLDR
The recognition of lobar atelectasis is important, particularly in cases stemming from obstructing endobronchial tumors, and careful analysis of the chest radiograph and subtle alterations in the fissures and hilar vascularity aids in differentiating lobarAtelectasis from other intrathoracic processes. Expand
Computed Tomography of Bronchiectasis
TLDR
Computed tomography was performed on patients with bronchiectasis and it was concluded that CT should have a role in establishing the presence and anatomic extent of bronchiECTasis. Expand
Pulmonary histiocytosis X: comparison of radiographic and CT findings.
TLDR
High-resolution CT was better than radiography at showing the morphology and distribution of lung abnormalities and correlated better with the diffusing capacity than did the plain radiographic findings. Expand
The right paratracheal stripe.
The right paratracheal stripe (RPS) is seen on postero-anterior chest radiographs as a thin, water-density stripe between the air column of the trachea and the adjacent right lung. The range of widthExpand
