[Diffuse pulmonary infiltrates--challenging diagnosis].


The diagnostics of diffuse pulmonary infiltrates is based on high-resolution computed tomography of the lungs. In typical cases, this technique can usually be applied to diagnose IPF, sarcoidosis and allergic alveolitis quite reliably. Radiological findings in several interstitial pulmonary diseases are, however, overlapping and the diseases may involve atypical manifestations. Analysis of tomographic images requires an experienced radiologist.
