Abstract

Three cases illustrate the value of computed tomography in bullous lung disease. Computed tomography offers additional information over standard radiography regarding the number, size, and origin of the bullae. Differential diagnosis between bullae and loculated pneumothorax is also possible. Computed tomography is indicated in postoperative follow-up to evaluate pulmonary re-expansion and to identify small residual peripheral bullae or pneumothorax.
