Abstract

Radiographic identification of pulmonary metastases has proved to be a challenging problem. We applied high resolution CT (HRCT) to 180 postmortem lung specimens prepared by a method that allows for direct one-to-one pathologic-radiologic correlation. Of the 180 lungs, 32 had pulmonary metastases. The location, number, size, and interstitial changes were evaluated in 32 cases with pulmonary metastases. The pulmonary metastases were peripheral lesions in 94% of these 32 patients, and multiple tumors were found in 91% of these cases. The metastases were
