Imaging in Lung Transplantation: Surgical Considerations of Donor and Recipient. Radiologic clinics of North America Backhus, L. M., Mulligan, M. S., Ha, R., Shriki, J. E., Mohammed, T. H. 2016; 54 (2): 339-353


Modifications in recipient and donor criteria and innovations in donor management hold promise for increasing rates of lung transplantation, yet availability of donors remains a limiting resource.
