Abstract

In this chapter we will illustrate the paradigmatic role that medical imaging has played in helping to define, understand, and treat a specific form of respiratory failure called acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). ARDS is a life-threatening syndrome characterized by noncardiogenic (inflammatory) pulmonary edema causing mainly hypoxemic respiratory failure unresponsive to conventional therapy.
