High resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scans are increasingly used in hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP). This study looked at HRCT findings at different phases of farmer's lung (FL), a common form of HP. A cross sectional analysis of 95 HRCT scans of FL cases (20 acute, 75 with a history of FL, 48 still in contact (Ex +) (dairy farm), and 27 who had ceased contact (Ex-)) was made. All scans were read independently by two, and if needed by three, radiologists blinded to the category. The… CONTINUE READING
