Description

Notice that even within each lobe there is a gravity dependent difference in density.
This is only seen when the consolidations are the result of transudate like in CHF.
This is not seen when the consolidations are the result of exsudate due to infection, blood due to hemorrhage or when there is a capillary leak like in ARDS. #Clinical #Radiology #CTChest #CHF #Alveolar #Pulmonary #Edema #AlveolarEdema #Gravity #Dependent #RadiologyAssistant
