Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to describe abnormalities seen on MDCT of the airways and lung parenchyma that are caused by the aspiration of solid foreign bodies and liquid material. CONCLUSION. MDCT allows us to diagnose a full spectrum of disease processes associated with aspiration and complications in the airways and lung. Recognition of the CT findings characteristic of a specific type and location of the aspirate is valuable to make an accurate diagnosis, thereby facilitating optimal clinical management.
