    Tracheal dilatation and bronchiectasis
     

    Posteroanterior projection. A tracheal diameter superior to 2 cm (hollow arrows) is seen.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Tracheal dilatation and bronchiectasis.;

    Lateral view. Note the characteristically scalloped or corrugated outline of the trachea with posterior diverticula (black arrows). Hollow arrows point to the anterior and posterior margins of the trachea.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Tracheal dilatation and bronchiectasis.;

    No annotation

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Tracheal dilatation and bronchiectasis.;

    Posteroanterior (Fig. 1c) and lateral (Fig. 1d) projections show multiple bronchiectasis in both lower lobes (hollow arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Tracheal dilatation and bronchiectasis.;

    Tracheobronchomegaly with posterior tracheal diverticula. Bronchiectasis
     

    An axial CT scan. Tracheobronchomegaly. The transverse tracheal diameter is 30 mm. Note the posterior tracheal diverticula.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Tracheobroncomegaly with posterior tracheal diverticula. Bronchiectasis.;

    Irregular corrugated appearance of both main bronchi and of the anterior segment of the right upper lobe and the posterior segment branch.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Tracheobroncomegaly with posterior tracheal diverticula. Bronchiectasis.;

    High resolution CT scan of the lower lobe showing multiple cylindrical bronchiectasis (hollow arrow). See the typical signet ring sign (white arrows) due to a pulmonary artery adjacent to a dilated bronchus.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Tracheobroncomegaly with posterior tracheal diverticula. Bronchiectasis.;

    High resolution CT image showing multiple dilated, thick-walled bronchi bilaterally.
