3. Intraparenchymal lung hematoma
Intraparenchymal lung hematoma.
CT of a child suffering a penetrating pellet gun injury shows a homogeneous hematoma along the tract of the pellet. Fainter airspace opacification adjacent to the hematoma represents contused lung. There is a small amount of blood and air in the pleural space.
