The HRCT is the most sensitive and specific modality for detecting and characterizing any interstitial lung disease.
To summarize the key features for the pathologist in the 2011 evidence-based guidelines for IPF5: (1) Surgical lung biopsy is no longer necessary for diagnosis of IPF; HRCT is acceptable instead.
HRCT (6 November 2006) revealed multiple small nodules (seven), prominent interstitial markings, and bronchiectasis.
describe an algorithmic approach to diagnosis on HRCT which can be used to better characterize diffuse nodular lung disease.
Typically thin walled lung cysts are less than 20 mm in diameter and necessitate thoracic HRCT for a probable diagnosis (8).
Combined 6-month preliminary pulmonary function and HRCT data are available for over half of the patients who remain in the study.
The results for both subgroups are consistent with the INPULSIS primary endpoint finding for the overall patient population which showed nintedanib, one capsule twice a day, slowed disease progression by reducing the annual rate of decline in lung function by 50% in a broad range of IPF patient types - including patients with early disease (FVC>90% pred), no honeycombing on HRCT and/or concomitant emphysema.
In addition to history, physical examination, and appropriate audiologic testing, HRCT has been an extremely valuable tool in screening patients with various forms of hearing loss, including those with congenital hearing loss.
We have over 95% of the attendees present at the end of a 2-and-a-half-day intensive course, and those who left had unavoidable reasons to depart early', announced Professor Leon Janse van Rensburg, RSSA Congress Chairman, at the end of the last lecture of the interactive HRCT course.
When a diagnosis of a CTD-associated ILD is strongly suspected on the plain radiograph, a HRCT scan will provide the necessary clarification as to the particular anatomical regions involved.
Above all, considering the confusing diagnostic possibilities, including opportunistic infections, congestive heart failure, and transfusion-related acute lung injury, and several toxic agents, exact diagnosis of hyper-sensitivity pneumonitis should rely primarily on characteristic HRCT features and lymphocytosis in bronchoalveolar lavage, so as to minimize the likelihood of misdiagnosis.
