Purpose of Review The purpose of this review is to describe the main features of the aging chest, studied through different imaging modalities. Recent Findings Aging-related changes of the respiratory system are inevitable. Therefore, it is mandatory to be familiar with the para-physiological changes that occurs, in order to avoid inappropriate interpretation of radiological findings that put patients at risk of over or undertreatment.

Abstract

Purpose of Review The purpose of this review is to describe the main features of the aging chest, studied through different imaging modalities. Recent Findings Aging-related changes of the respiratory system are inevitable. Therefore, it is mandatory to be familiar with the para-physiological changes that occurs, in order to avoid inappropriate interpretation of radiological findings that put patients at risk of over or undertreatment.
