Abstract

Summary A 74-year-old man presents with a left upper lobe lung adenocarcinoma, which demonstrated a wide base intimately with the aortic arch. We utilised 4D CT technique with a wide field of view CT unit to preoperatively determine likely surgical resectability. We propose that 4D CT may be of use in further investigating lung cancer with likely invasion of adjacent structures.
