This report presents a detailed analysis of normal cross-sectional hilar anatomy. Specially prepared cadavers injected with red and blue latex were utilized for correlation with 100 normal computed tomographic examinations. Thorough knowledge of the normal appearance of cross-sectional hilar anatomy is a prerequisite for recognizing abnormalities that affect the pulmonary hila.
