When the microscopic assessment of emphysema is expressed in terms of an estimate of the density of alveolar tissue per unit volume of lung (AWUV), there is good correlation with assessment of emphysema using computed tomography (CT)189,193. Such studies, based on microscopic assessment of emphysema, represent a significant advance in the ability to identify early emphysema in life, and to follow its progression194. By application of combinations of quantitative histology and CT-determined lung volume data, Coxson and colleagues have been able to provide quantitative estimates of the extent of lung destruction in patients that may be followed longitudinally in the future: this will allow pathogenesis to be better understood and the effects of treatment to be determined195,196.
