The right lower lobe superior or apical segment is one of the five bronchopulmonary segments of the right lower lobe. It is the most apical of the segments in the right lower lobe, posteroinferior to the upper aspect of the oblique fissure and posterior segment of the right upper lobe.
Due to its high position, pathology in the right lower lobe superior segment can produce mid to upper zone opacification on chest radiographs.
