High-Resolution CT of the Lungs: Findings in Various Pulmonary Diseases
High-resolution CT (HRCT) is a technique that optimizes the spatial resolutionof conventional scanners. HRCT shows exqui- site 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 tech- nical features of HRCT and discuss the HRCT findings in various lung diseases.
