Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Air density areas (ADAs) such as air bronchogram, bubble-like area, and cavity on high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) of pulmonary adenocarcinoma were examined to clarify their pathological implications. Forty-two resected specimens of pulmonary adenocarcinoma were histopathologically examined in correlation with the HRCT findings with particular emphasis on ADAs. Forty-one ADAs observed in 32 of 42 cases with pulmonary adenocarcinoma were classified into three types: air bronchogram type (n = 22), bubble-like area type (n = 12), and cavity type (n = 8). Twenty of 22 air bronchogram ADAs corresponded to bronchi. Nine of 12 bubble-like area ADAs corresponded to bronchioles. Only one of eight cavity-ADAs consisted of necrosis. The classification of ADAs in pulmonary adenocarcinoma is considered to be useful in interpreting HRCT findings of pulmonary nodules.
