Explanation:
"A radiologic diagnosis of trapped lung was based on incomplete parenchymal expansion, absent markings peripheral to the visceral pleura, and a pleural space lucency of similar shape and size as that of the initial effusion. Patients with a trapped lung that did not expand with increased intrapleural suction and who had a reasonable long-term prognosis were referred either for thoracoscopy or pleuroperitoneal shunt drainage."

agree  Vicky Papaprodromou: Ως "parenchymal expasion" δεν τόχα ψάξει γιατί δεν ήξερα πως υπάρχει το επίθετο κι ούτε το σκέφτηκα. Όταν μιλούν οι ειδικοί, πάσα αρχή παυσάτω!!! :)))
