Abstract

During a period of 17 months, a total of 101 patients were examined by high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) whose minor focal changes revealed by chest X-ray raised the suspicion of diffuse infiltrative pulmonary disease. The disease of the interstitium was primarily caused by idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (19%), autoimmune disease (18%), Boeck sarcoidosis (18%) as well as by specific (16%) and aspecific inflammation (12%). HRCT disclosed reticular (61%), nodular (55%), ground-glass opacity-like (48%), emphysematous (33%) and ring-like changes (17%). Also transbronchial excision was performed in 51 patients the results of which were compared to the changes observed during HRCT. Concerning fibrosis and inflammation, HRCT and histological analysis showed identical results in 70%. According to the authors observations, this technique is suitable for detection of fairly fine fibrotic, empysematous and inflammatory signs and for defining the activity of the individual disease as also for the selection of the optimal site of transbronchial excision. HRCT is a useful investigative method both for diagnosing diffuse infiltrative pulmonary disease as well as in following up the effectiveness of treatment.
