Abstract

Several pulmonary conditions are characterized by the finding of areas of decreased attenuation relative to adjacent normal lung parenchyma on computed tomography. In particular, the identification of areas of the lung affected by small airways disease is difficult as the reduction in lung density is subtle and the regions are poorly marginated. This paper presents a novel wavelet analysis technique which increases the conspicuity of differences between normal and abnormal lung parenchyma.
