High-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) is rightly considered by radiologists and physicians to be an important technique in the investigation of patients with suspected diffuse lung disease. In those cases in which biopsy would previously have been mandatory, the diagnostic process has been revolutionized by HRCT. For example, in patients with the entity of usual interstitial pneumonia, the appearance of the disease on HRCT is characteristic enough for an accurate radiological diagnosis to be made, rendering biopsy unnecessary [1–3]. A similar scenario is the patient with suspected sarcoidosis; in such cases the HRCT images will allow a radiological diagnosis to be made with greater confidence, again obviating the need for more invasive procedures.
