This symposium provides a timely compendium on advanced imaging of COPD, a disease that has recently generated a great deal of interest based upon new information regarding its genetic basis, qualitative and quantitative imaging evaluation, and growing number of treatment options. As noted by guest editor Bob Steiner, “contributions by experts in the field of diagnostic radiology, imaging research, and clinical investigation provide comprehensive and up-to-date reviews concerning the imaging aspects of COPD.” Topics included in this symposium include state-of-the-art quantification of COPD using CT and MRI, current approaches to radiologic-pathologic correlation, and innovative interventional approaches for the treatment of COPD.
