When the lung changes show the characteristics of lung consolidation, one should ﬁrst look for other patterns (Fig. 21). If another pattern (especially the nodular pattern) is present, diagnosis should be based on this pattern because consolidation probably represents conﬂuence. 5). Centrilobular (nodular) consolidation often corresponds with airspace ﬁ lling resulting from disease that shows an airway distribution (Fig. 22a). Bronchopneumonia, organising pneumonia, bronchioloalveolar carcinoma and eosinophilic pneumonia may show this appearance.
Cyst-like areas of decreased lung attenuation develop because necrosis occurs in pre-existing nodules or nodular opacities. However, lung destruction and loss of lung tissue is most frequently the result of pulmonary emphysema. Pulmonary emphysema is deﬁ ned as a condition of the lung characterised by permanent, abnormal enlargement of airspaces distal to the terminal bronchiole, accompanied by the destruc- a b Fig. 8a,b. Emphysematous lung destruction as a cause of decreased lung density. Both small (centrilobular emphysema: arrowheads) and large( conﬂuent centrilobular emphysema: arrows) areas of lung destruction are seen in both lungs a tion of their walls (Fig.
