Although high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) is commonly used to assess interstitial lung disease (ILD), relatively little is known about interrater reliability and construct validity of HRCT-reported nodules, ground-glass opacity, or other typical findings. We determined the interobserver and intraobserver variability of HRCT findings and correlated HRCT abnormalities with physiologic measures in 57 patients with chronic beryllium disease (CBD). Reliability of HRCT scan measurements… CONTINUE READING
