The relevance of high-resolution computed tomographic findings and pulmonary arterial hypertension in systemic sclerosis-associated interstitial lung disease.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To compare the high-resolution computed tomographic (HRCT) findings between systemic sclerosis-associated interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD) with and without pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), as well as to correlate the calculated HRCT scores and the estimated systolic pulmonary artery pressure (sPAP). MATERIAL AND METHOD The medical… (More)
