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.
As discussed, emphysema leads to distortion of the lung parenchyma due to alveolar destruction, specifically creating rounded lucencies within the secondary pulmonary lobule (Figures 3-5).
