In the current study, more than half of the cases showed air trapping; we excluded lung regions of air trapping limited to a single secondary pulmonary lobule during analysis.
Emphysema may be classified into various types, based on the pattern of lung parenchyma destruction with respect to the secondary pulmonary lobule: proximal acinus in centriacinar (centrilobular) emphysema and distal in paraseptal and whole acinus in panacinar (panlobular) emphysema.
