Computed tomography

Chest CT, particularly high-resolution CT, has largely replaced bronchography in the evaluation of stable patients with bronchiectasis. McGuiness ef a/ (1994) have shown its value in conjunction with bronchoscopy in assessing patients with non-massive hemoptysis and normal chest radiographs. However, as bronchogenic carcinoma is rarely the cause of massive hemoptysis, the additional information provided by chest CT is seldom relevant and does not justify its routine use in this situation.
