Lung airways. Coloured chest X-ray showing the healthy airways (red) of the lungs. Bones are black. The trachea (windpipe, upper centre) divides into two main bronchi which enter each lung. The bronchi then split further into smaller bronchi and finally bronchioles that terminate at clusters of alveoli (not seen). These air sacs are surrounded by blood vessels, allowing gas exchange to take place.
