abstract

  • The purpose of this pictorial essay is to review the CT imaging findings of both common and rare mass-like nonvascular pulmonary lesions in children. Understanding the characteristic CT appearance of mass-like nonvascular pulmonary lesions in children aids in accurate diagnosis and allows unnecessary or inadvisable interventions (biopsies and/or surgery) to be avoided in specific cases.
