German term or phrase: Größenkonstante Raumforderung Seg. 2 der linken Lunge.
This occurs frequently in medical reports/findings. Is it perhaps more than the obvious "size consistency"?

unchanged lesion size in left bronchopulmonary segment number two


Explanation:
"unchanged lesion size"
http://goo.gl/KOvO6



Each lobe of each lung is further subdivided into lung segments. These segments are not 'separated' from each other at all. They are named accordingly to the 'segmental' bronchus that supplies them.

A lung segment is therefore an area of lung tissue that is supplied by that segmental bronchus. Knowledge of the position of the lung segments is useful if you are trying to position a patient to drain secretions from that segment using gravity.

posterior bronchopulmonary segment = left bronchopulmonary segment number two

Therefore, the bronchopulmonary segments of the left superior lobe of the lung are:
apical bronchopulmonary segment; left bronchopulmonary segment number one - supplied by apical segmental bronchus
posterior bronchopulmonary segment; left bronchopulmonary segment number two - supplied by posterior segmental bronchus
