Adenocarcinoma This lady presented with severe breathlessness and was unfit for FOB. Subsequent CT showed compression of LLL bronchus but distal airways not visualised. VB and MPR (image 2 & 3) shows compression of LLL bronchus and patent distal airways. Subsequent rigid bronchoscopy confirmed this. A stent was inserted. Small multiple 3mm nodules were also seen which were not visualised on VB.
Carcinoid Tumour This frail 82yr old patient with IHD presented with malaise and haemoptysis. VB and MPR (image 1 & 2) showed a polypoid lesion in the RUL bronchus. Subsequent FOB (image 3) confirmed this.
CLL with RUL pneumonia This 66yr old male with CLL presented with RUL pneumonia and was too ill for FOB. VB showed patent RUL bronchus excluding an obstructive/compressive lesion.
Sq Ca occluding LM bronchus FOB in this man showed an occluded LMB (seen on photograph). VB and MPR (image 1 and 2) confirms this but clearly also shows that distal airways are patent. This could not be appreciated on the axial CT view (image 3).
