PATTERN III--CONSOLIDATION WITH ASSOCIATED LOSS OF VOLUME: The CWALV lesions appear as areas of consolidation with apparent focal loss of volume manifesting as bronchovascular distortion with or without associated fibrous bands on the adjacent lung parenchyma.
On CT, nodular opacity were seen in all, while confluent consolidation were seen in 37% and CWALV in 69% of patient.
Cavitations were most common with CWALV lesions suggesting liquifactive necrosis of caseous focus and its removal at more advanced stages of pathological process.
