Radiographic Lung Patterns

This free Veterinary Webinar is produced by London Vet Specialists with Dr Ian David Jones BVetMed, MVetMed, CertVDI, DipECVDI, PhD, MRCVS.

This useful webinar recording takes us through exactly how to describe and interpret different lung patterns in thoracic radiographs in cats and dogs. 

Dr Jones begins by describing the anatomy of the lung lobes as seen on thoracic radiographs in lateral and dorso-ventral views. 

He then guides us through how to identify interstitial, alveolar, and bronchial lung patterns and what each might be caused by. 

Dr Jones explains how the location of radiographic changes within the lung can point towards the underlying cause. 

We find out how to identify pulmonary arteries and veins and to interpret changes in pulmonary vasculature. Dr Jones also shows how us how to identify metastatic disease on thoracic radiographs and interpret apparent ‘nodules’. 

The webinar concludes with a brief summary on how to spot pleural effusion in thoracic radiographs.
