Figure 6-3

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.

Figure 6-6

Airway foreign body.

An anteroposterior chest radiograph shows an aspirated bracelet in the distal trachea and proximal bronchi. Because the airway obstruction is bilateral, there is symmetric lung inflation. Minimal atelectasis is present in the left lower lobe.
