Detecting And Diagnosing Using The Chest X-Ray (Radiographic Investigation) Chronic Bronchitis
Interpreting The Chest X-ray
A Pictorial Representation Of Chronic Bronchitis
Chronic Bronchitis manifests not only on its own, but together with Emphysema to form Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). COPD is characterized by poorly reversible airflow limitation that is usually progressive and associated with a persistent inflammatory response of the lungs. COPD is now the preferred term for patients previously diagnosed as having chronic bronchitis or emphysema.
So, this hub will strictly be a pictorial representation of this respiratory pathology as there are already enough articles on Chronic Bronchitis or COPD.
