Abstract

High-resolution CT (HRCT) is a technique that optimizes the spatial resolution of conventional scanners. HRCT shows exquisite detail of both normal and diseased lung. The findings seen with HRCT of the lung correlate well with the microscopic and gross pathologic findings. In this review, we describe the technical features of HRCT and discuss the HRCT findings in various lung diseases.
