Pulmonary Artery Dilatation-CT
Various authors have found that individuals with intrinsic lung disease can be identified as having pulmonary hypertension if the main pulmonary artery is greater than 29 mm. The upper limit of normal for the diameter of the pulmonary artery is 28.6 mm. A value greater than 28.6 mm suggests increased pressures in the pulmonary system.
