Normal expiratory air trapping. CT obtained at end-expiration shows multiple lobules of air trapping (arrowheads) Because these papers indicate that air trapping may be found on expiratory CT in normal subjects (Fig. 17), clinical interpretation of air trapping found on CT must consider the extent of abnormality, associated CT findings of mosaic attenuation or bronchial abnormalities, and physiologic evidence of obstruction. ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors gratefully acknowledge Dr. Robert C. Gilkeson for his outstanding illustrations and descriptions of upper airway anatomy.
