Small airways

Last revised by Daniel J Bell on 27 Mar 2018

Small airways traditionally refer to distal airways that are 2-3 mm or less in caliber 3 with a wall thickness of less than 0.5 mm 5. These therefore include terminal bronchi (have cartilage) as well as bronchioles (no cartilage). They may or may not be directly visible on CT.
