Fibrosing lung diseases encompass a heterogeneous spectrum of life-threatening conditions requiring a prompt and rigorous diagnosis. The identification of the different forms of these disorders relies on the use of CT since each pathologic category is generally defined by a specific CT pattern.
In this new MDCT.net videographic, Prof. Prosch provides a comprehensive overview of the CT criteria for the correct detection, discrimination and classification of each specific type of fibrosing lung disease. As he highlights in his talk, the adoption of CT for the imaging characterization of these conditions is the fundamental starting point for an interdisciplinary discussion of the most complex and unclear clinical manifestations, and may also help avoid, in several cases, more invasive and painful diagnostic procedures for the patients.
