Advanced visualization of airways with 64-MDCT: 3D mapping and virtual bronchoscopy

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this pictorial essay is to review the current role of virtual bronchoscopy and 3D imaging of the airways in clinical practice. CONCLUSIONS. Virtual bronchoscopy produces high-resolution images of the tracheobronchial tree and endobronchial views that simulate the findings at conventional bronchoscopy. Interest in virtual bronchoscopy is increasing as a result of improvements in computer hardware and software and advances in MDCT that allow acquisition of isotropic data.
