Centrilobular micronodules

Centrilobular micronodules are an image descripter which refer to centrilobular nodules when the nodules are very small and present in a centrilobular distribution in the lungs. They are usually seen with a bronchiolitis and can blend into tree-in-bud opacities.

Image interpretation

Postprocessing techniques such as obtaining maximum intensity projections (MIPs) use the original thin-section dataset and are helpful in making centrilobular nodules more conspicuous and easier to interpret.
