male, 63 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Chest CT
     

    An endobronchial lesion is seen within the lingula lobe bronchus. An area of different attenuation ratio is seen peripheral of the endobronchial lesion

     
    Area of Interest: Thorax; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Tissue characterisation;

    An endobronchial lesion is seen within the lingula lobe bronchus( yellow arrow). An area of different attenuation ratio is seen peripheral of the endobronchial lesion ( blue area)

     
    Area of Interest: Thorax; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Tissue characterisation;
