PMID:  15290576     Owner:  NLM     Status:  PubMed-not-MEDLINE    
Rigid or fiberoptic endoscopy is performed to evaluate the trachea in a patient with suspected tracheal injury. We present a case in which CT virtual endoscopy identified a tracheal laceration not seen on axial or sagittal reformations. This case highlights the usefulness of this modality in the diagnosis and preoperative planning of tracheal injury.
