Abstract

• High-resolution computed tomography with 3 D reconstructions becomes increasingly important in phenotyping COPD and diagnosing emphysema. • Patient selection is crucial for modern techniques of lung volume reduction, such as valves or coils. • Radiology plays a key role for fissural analysis and identifying a target area. • Success of this therapy depends on experience and multidisciplinary cooperation.
