Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Radiology Resident Core Curriculum Presentation

In this presentation, I review:

  • the clinical diagnosis of COPD and an estimation of its severity
  • the use of pulmonary function tests (particularly spirometry) relevant to the diagnosis of COPD
  • imaging (radiography and computed tomography) findings in the two dominant phenotypes: emphysema and airway-dominant COPD
  • giant bullous emphysema and its surgical management
  • combined emphysema-interstitial fibrosis syndrome
