This book offers a comprehensive review of large and small airways disorders. It begins with four introductory chapters devoted to airway physiology, anatomy, and anatomical and functional CT imaging methods. These chapters are followed by coverage of large airways disorders in adults, including airway stenoses, neoplasms, malacia and bronchiectasis. The next section examines small airways disorders in adults, including asthma, infectious and non-infectious small airways disorders, obliterative bronchiolitis, and smoking-related airway diseases. The final two chapters detail pediatric large and small airway disorders.
This book offers a comprehensive review of large and small airways disorders. It emphasizes CT imaging. This book is a collaborative project that has greatly benefited from the contributions of many expert authors from around the globe.Imaging of the airways is a fascinating undertaking and, if done expertly, a true art in medicine. Over the past years, imaging of the airways has become ever more exciting and demanding, as new therapies in pulmonary medicine have become available that require careful imaging assessment of patients to aid management and monitor therapeutic success. The increasing importance of imaging in pulmonary medicine is accompanied by a surge of revolutionary developments in imaging technology that enable ever finer assessment of lung structure and function. No modality has seen more rapid innovation over the last decade than computed tomography. Current multidetector-row CT technology makes high-resolution imaging of the chest with a spatial resolution of a couple of 100 m in a matter of mere seconds. Ever more sophisticated post-processing applications enable intuitive, quantitative assessment of lung structure and function in an efficient manner, so that these technologies are increasingly embraced in mainstream medicine to improve patient care. CT of the Airways, which was so expertly assemlct
