Abstract: Thin-section axial and multiplanar reformation images are helpful in the diagnosis of BPF. Multi-detector row CT can be an initial diagnostic modality of BPF.

“…The ability to evaluate the lungs in more than one plane with MPR images is another important advantage of MDCT. This is especially true in the coronal plane because of the many airways that run perpendicular to the axial plane 7 . The MPR and 3D images available with the MDCT are also beneficial during BPF management.…”

“…However, they did no show a statistically significant advantage when utilizing thin-section CT in their study group composed of 33 patients. Wescott and Wolpe 9 concluded that both standard and thin-section CT are important for detecting BPFs, and Seo et al 7 . suggested that thin-section MDCT with axial and MPR images was important in the detection of small, central BPFs.…”

“…The main causes for peripheral BPFs (ie, segmental or more distal airways or lung parenchyma communicating with the pleural cavity) are necrotizing pulmonary infection (ie, cavitary necrosis), trauma, lung surgery, and malignancy. 69,70 Presence of air in the pleural space before aspiration or drainage attempts is suggestive of either a peripheral BPF or infection with a gas-producing organism. Multidetector CT with thin-section axial and multiplanar reformation images may show a fistulous tract between the pleural space and peripheral airway or lung parenchyma in peripherally located BPFs (Fig.…”

“…Pulmonary physicians are often consulted to assist in the management of these patients [6]. Several methods have been used to diagnose BPFs, including bronchography [2, 3], CT, and MRI [4, 5]. Bronchoscopy has been shown to play an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of these pathological conditions [68].…”
