Computed tomography images of the chest. a, b, and c A CT scan of the lungs showed right-sided pneumothorax, small cavitary lesions in the right lower lobe and nodules in the left lung. d, e and f Chest CT images showing a large amount of gas in the left thoracic cavity and the left lung tissue compressed by approximately 60%. Both lungs displayed scattered, patchy and nodular high-density shadows, and some exhibited a ground-glass density. g, h, and i Chest CT images showing bilateral pneumothorax with the mediastinum deviated to the right, patch-like high-density shadows scattered in both lungs, and an ambiguous boundary. j, k, and l A CT scan of lungs showed gas on both sides of the chest cavity, and both lungs presented scattered nodules and patchy high-density shadows with unclear boundaries
