The development and rapid advancement of both bronchoscopic, CT and ultrasound imaging technology has had considerable impact on the management of a wide variety of pulmonary diseases. The synergy between these newer imaging modalities and advanced interventional endoscopic procedures has led to a revolution in diagnostic and therapeutic options in patients with both central and peripheral airway disease. Given the broad clinical implications of these technological advances, only the most important areas of interventional pulmonology in which imaging has had a major impact will be selectively reviewed to highlight fundamental principles.
