To explore the clinical value of enhanced CT in the diagnosis of pulmonary sequestration, our hospital randomly selected 100 patients with suspected pulmonary sequestration as the experimental study subjects between 2014 and 2021. All patients underwent enhanced CT, and the pathological examination results were used as the gold standard to analyze the sensitivity, missed diagnosis rate, and accuracy of enhanced CT diagnosis. Through experimental investigation, it can be concluded that enhanced CT has a high clinical diagnostic value for changes in pulmonary sequestration, with a sensitivity of 98% and a misdiagnosis rate of 7% for patients with pulmonary sequestration. Applying enhanced CT to the clinical practice of isolated lung segment patients will improve their clinical diagnostic accuracy and provide a basis for subsequent treatment work and formulation of appropriate treatment plans.
