Bronchogenic carcinoma is one among the leading causes of death in males in India and globally. Multidetector row Computed Tomography is a non-invasive technique for evaluation of bronchogenic carcinoma. Aims and objections: To document imaging characteristics of various histopathological cell types of bronchogenic carcinoma by MDCT and to correlate with histopathology. A prospective study was done on 60 patients with clinical or radiological suspicion of bronchogenic carcinoma undergoing MDCT. The final diagnosis was established by histopathology. Study duration was for 2 years from January 2013 to December 2014. Results: MDCT is a promising tool in evaluation of bronchogenic carcinoma. Squamous cell carcinoma is the most common histological celltype, closely followed by adenocarcinoma. Hilar mass was the predominant presentation followed by lung mass.
