COMMENTS

This image was obtained from a fifty-eight year-old female with long history of smoking and shortness of breath. Note the extensive translucency (darker portions of the image) occupying both upper lung fields and extending lower on the left with general crowding of the markings of the lung toward both bases. There are irregular strands and probable bullae formation.
