The extent of such air trapping correlates with the severity of the asthma. This reflects the luminal obstruction of the airways and is potentially, but not always, reversible. In patients with persistent asthma, the absence of a change in air-trapping scores after inhalation of bronchodilator suggests that the air trapping reflects permanent changes resulting from small-airway remodeling. A. Grenier Suggested Reading Boiselle PM, Lee KS, Lin S, Raptopoulos V (2006) Cine CT during coughing for assessment of tracheomalacia: preliminary experience with 64-MDCT.

The use of paired inspiratory-dynamic expiratory MDCT has been proposed in patients with tracheobronchomalacia, before therapeutic procedures such as stent placement and tracheoplasty. In addition, MDCT during inspiration and expiration can also be used for the global assessment of lung attenuation, with the advantage that it also provides anatomic detail. L. Storto Image Post-processing Reformatted 2D and 3D images are frequently used after volumetric CT of the airways, since they can help overcome the limitations of axial images by providing a more easily comprehensible display of the tracheobronchial tree.

By combining helical volumetric acquisition and thin-slice thickness of the entire thorax within a single breath-hold, multidetector-row CT (MDCT) allows a thorough assessment of both large and small airways. Here, MDCT protocols for imaging airways will be reviewed, together with a description of their clinical applications to most common airway diseases, including bronchial stenoses, bronchiectasis, and small-airway disease. 25 mm) is recommended when imaging airways with a MDCT scanner, in order to obtain high quality 2D and 3D reconstructions.
