Pulmonary cavities are gas-filled areas of the lung in the center of a nodule, mass or area of consolidation. They are usually evident on plain radiography and CT. They are typically thick walled and their walls must be greater than 2-5 mm. They may be filled with air as well as fluid and may also demonstrate air-fluid levels.
