Left Upper Lobe Collapse

A walk through the typical chest x-ray and CT scan findings in left upper lobe collapse.

It is always important to think laterally on the chest radiograph. Since most presentations of lobar collapse are de to obstruction from a neoplasm, it is vitally imporant to search around the film for evidence of disease spread e.g. bony metastases or other soft tissue deposits.

Don't stop just because you found the first problem you see (satisfaction of search error).
