Sample text

6 (A) Illustration of a normal secondary pulmonary lobule and bronchovascular bundle. The secondary pulmonary lobule is represented by the hexagon; in the center are the bronchiole (green ring) and arteriole (red circle); in the periphery are pulmonary venules (short, fat arrow). To the right are cross-sections of a bronchus (arrowhead) and pulmonary artery (arrow). (B) Illustration of interstitial pulmonary edema. There is an increase in the attenuation of the lung parenchyma, but the vessels are still easily seen; this is ground-glass opacification.

Fig. 18 Normal selective digital bronchial artery angiogram in a 27-year-old man. The right intercostobronchial artery branches to the right bronchus and extends superiorly to the right ribs. 1 Anatomy origins include the aortic arch, internal mammary artery, thyrocervical trunk, subclavian artery, costocervical trunk, brachiocephalic artery, pericardiacophrenic artery, inferior phrenic artery, and abdominal aorta. 5 mm in diameter at their origin. 5 mm is considered abnormal.

Fig. 8 (A–C) Arteriovenous malformation in an 83-year-old woman. (A) Chest radiograph demonstrates a serpinginous opacity overlying the left upper lobe (arrow). 2 Congenital Anomalies Fig. 8 (Continued) Arteriovenous malformation in an 83-year-old woman. (B) MIP CT demonstrates a peripheral abnormality consistent with an arteriovenous malformation (arrow). (C) Curved reformatted CT image demonstrates that the abnormality (arrow) is fed directly from a branch of the pulmonary artery (PA) and drains directly into the left atrium (LA), proving that it is an arteriovenous malformation.
