Abstract

Computer tomography (CT) has become one of the most important modern diagnostic procedure in the detection, differential diagnosis, treatment and the postoperative follow up of patients suffering from chronic intrathoracic suppuration. Although CT examination is nowadays almost unlimitedly available it is still not regarded as a routine diagnostic procedure. It proves to be remarkably useful in the surgical treatment of neglected, chronic cases of suppuration in the thoracic cavity. On the basis of the Moores empyema thoracis classification [3] patients in the third stage belong to the group with chronic intrathoracic suppuration. Their empyema can only be treated by a major surgery or a series of operations.
