Patient
male, 15 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    CT of the lung
     

    Ground-glass opacity in the right upper lobe. The ground-glass opacities are due to pulmonary infection (pneumonia). Normal carina.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT of the lung;

    The upper lobe bronchus is lying next to the trachea.

    Coronal reconstruction of the mediastinum.

    The upper lobe bronchus originates from the distal trachea, proximal to the carina.

    Virtual bronchoscopy shows the aberrant right superior bronchus. Virtual bronchoscopy passes the distal trachea, showing a narrowed carina.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Virtual bronchoscopy of the trachea.;

    Passing along the origin of the tracheal bronchus, virtual bronchoscopy shows the head carina which is narrowed antero-posteriorly. Virtual bronchoscopy allows passage into the right bronchus which is open and well...
