Abstract

HRCT is a very powerful tool in the assessment of patients with diffuse lung disease. Complete appreciation of the diagnostic capabilities of HRCT requires a firm understanding of pulmonary anatomy, particularly the anatomic arrangement of the secondary pulmonary nodule, and the technical factors required for optimal HRCT imaging. With such knowledge, abnormalities on HRCT may be effectively approached by using an organized, algorithmic method. Rigorous application of an ordered, pattern approach to HRCT abnormalities allows for reproducible and accurate interpretation.
