Conventional chest X-ray and computed tomography as the main diagnostic tools are demonstrated with their possibilities in the diagnosis of emphysema. They were correlated with lung function tests and pathology in literature. Volume reduction surgery as a new operation technique for patients with advanced emphysema needs different radiologic evaluation. The radiologic possibilities for evaluation of operability of these patients and for operation planning will be discussed.
