    Airway Imaging in Disease; Gimmick or Useful Tool?

    Airway remodeling is an important pathophysiological mechanism in a variety of chronic airway diseases. Historically investigators have had to use invasive techniques such as histological examination of excised tissue to study airway wall structure. The last several years has seen a proliferation of relatively non-invasive techniques to assess the airway branching pattern, wall thickness and, more recently, airway wall tissue components. These methods include computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and optical coherence tomography. These new imaging technologies have become popular because in order to understand the physiology of lung disease it is important we understand the underlying anatomy. However, these ...
