PURPOSE To evaluate sliding-thin-slab maximum intensity projection (MIP) reconstructions in the assessment of micronodular patterns of low profusion in diffuse infiltrative lung disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty-one adult patients (mean age, 48 years) with suspicion of pneumo-coniosis (n = 25), sarcoidosis (n = 19), smoker bronchiolitis (n = 17), and bronchiolitis of miscellaneous causes (n = 20) underwent 1- and 8-mm-thick conventional computed tomography (CT) and focal spiral CT with… CONTINUE READING
