An official ATS/ERS/JRS/ALAT statement: idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis: evidence-based guidelines for diagnosis and management.
This document represents the current state of knowledge regarding idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and contains sections on definition and epidemiology, risk factors, diagnosis, natural history, staging and prognosis, treatment, and monitoring disease course.
Fleischner Society: glossary of terms for thoracic imaging.
Members of the Fleischner Society compiled a glossary of terms for thoracic imaging that replaces previous glossaries published in 1984 and 1996 for thoracic radiography and computed tomography (CT),
Idiopathic nonspecific interstitial pneumonia: report of an American Thoracic Society project.
Iiopathic NSIP is a distinct clinical entity that occurs mostly in middle-aged women who are never-smokers and the prognosis is very good.
"Density mask". An objective method to quantitate emphysema using computed tomography.
A computed tomography scanner program that highlights voxels within a given density range to quantitate emphysema by defining areas of abnormally low attenuation accurately assesses the extent of emphySEma and eliminates interobserver and intraobserver variability.
Lung nodule enhancement at CT: multicenter study.
Test the hypothesis that absence of statistically significant lung nodule enhancement at computed tomography (CT) is strongly predictive of benignity by studying lung nodules and found it to be so.
Solitary pulmonary nodule: high-resolution CT and radiologic-pathologic correlation.
Edge and internal characteristics of pulmonary nodules evaluated with high-resolution computed tomography were correlated with the pathologic specimens in 93 patients, and malignant nodules as a group were larger than benign lesions and more commonly demonstrated a spiculated contour, lobulation, and inhomogeneous attenuation.
Utility of a lung biopsy for the diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
It is suggested that clinical and radiologic data that result in a confident diagnosis of IPF by an experienced pulmonologist or radiologist are sufficient to obviate the need for a lung biopsy.
Pulmonary complications after bone marrow transplantation: high-resolution CT and pathologic findings.
If CT findings are considered in relation to the time elapsed after BMT, diagnostic options can be narrowed sufficiently to enable accurate diagnosis.
Chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis: differentiation from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and nonspecific interstitial pneumonia by using thin-section CT.
Characteristic CT features of chronic HP, IPF, and NSIP allow confident distinction between these entities in approximately 50% of patients.
