In this webinar, Dr. Lee provides an overview of vasculitis in the lungs and insight into the general approach pulmonologists take in treating the disease. He discusses the tests commonly used to evaluate the lungs and lung manifestations due to the vasculitis. He defines and reviews the many terms and acronyms that pulmonologists use, including aneurysms, blood clots, pulmonary hypertension, airway involvement, stenosis, tracheomalacia, bronchitis, and nodules. He also discusses the three-pronged clinical, radiologic, and physiologic approach pulmonologists use in treating vasculitis.
