Goldin, Jonathan G MD, PHD

Abstract

Chronic lung disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Quantitative techniques for assessing emphysema and related airway disease have been slow to gain acceptance among radiologists, who have traditionally used description of structural changes to evaluate these diseases. This review provides an overview of these quantitative techniques.
