Conventional computed tomography has several limitations, connected with long scanning time, and using 1cm thick collimation. Improvement in quality of images of lung parenchyma led to the development of high resolution computed tomography (HRCT). It optimizes the morphological images of the lung parenchyma at the level of the lung lobule, becoming the… CONTINUE READING
