Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The lungs are susceptible to a wide range of diseases. Three types of lung disease prevent the lung from working properly: airway diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or bronchiectasis, tissue diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis, and circulation diseases such as pulmonary hypertension. Imaging plays an essential role in the detection and treatment of these diseases, providing both anatomical and functional information. Several modalities can be used to assess the lungs: computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasonography, nuclear medicine and radiography. The applications are many and varied and can be used, for example, in computed tomography from cancer screening to treatment planning in radiotherapy. Nuclear medicine is a useful tool for characterising nodules and providing metabolic activity data. Technological advances, ongoing research in radiogenomics and artificial intelligence will enable rapid advances in the management of lung disease.

In this Special Issue, we welcome authors to submit papers on the clinical advance of lung imaging in terms of both diagnosis and treatment. This Special Issue should contribute to our collective knowledge and ultimately benefit patients worldwide.
