Right Upper Lobe: Anterior Segment (S3)

  • Dominique Gossot


B3 is the anterior branch of the upper bronchus. It is independent from the apicoposterior truncus (B1+2) or from B1 and B2 and is usually easily recognized by its anterior direction, while B1 and B2 have a cephalad direction (◘ Fig. 10.1a).
