Relationship between quantitative radiographic assessments of interstitial lung disease and physiological and clinical features of systemic sclerosis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Extent of systemic sclerosis (SSc)-related interstitial lung disease (ILD) assessed from thoracic high-resolution CT (HRCT) predicts disease course, mortality and treatment response. While quantitative HRCT analyses of extent of lung fibrosis (QLFib) or total interstitial lung disease (QILD) are more sensitive and reproducible than visual HRCT… (More)
