    HRCT in Diffuse Lung Diseases - II (Honeycombing, UIP pattern, IPF) HRCT in Diffuse Lung Diseases - II (Honeycombing, UIP pattern, IPF) Presentation Transcript

    • HRCT in Diffuse Lung Diseases - II Dr. Bhavin Jankharia Jankharia Imaging
    • The key to learning HRCT interpretation in interstitial lungdiseases is to learn how to identifyhoneycombing, which allows us to recognize the Usual Interstitial Pneumonia (UIP) pattern
    • Honeycombing – layered peripheral cysts, stacked one on top of the other
    • D/D of Honeycombing
    • Honeycombing Bronchiectasis
    • Bronchiectasis presents withbranching cystic and tubular areas extending from the hilum to the periphery
    • Honeycombing Emphysema
    • Emphysema presents withcentrilobular cystic areas without walls
    • Honeycombing Cystic lung
    • Cystic interstitial lung disease presents with cysts with wallsrandomly distributed throughout the lung parenchyma
    • The presence of honeycombingallows us to confidently make a diagnosis of a usual interstitial pneumonia pattern (UIP)
    • Reticular pattern – no honeycombing Reticular pattern - honeycombing
    • The absence of honeycombing as seen on the left image does not rule out a UIP pattern, but adiagnosis of UIP cannot be madewith any specificity in that context. A non-specific interstitial pneumonia with fibrosis (NSIP) pattern also then comes into the differential diagnosis
    • The Diagnosis of a UIP Pattern
    • IPFUIP CriteriaReticular abnormalityHoneycombing with orwithout tractionbronchiectasisSubpleural basalpredominanceAbsence of other signs likeground glass, nodules, etc New IPF criteria – ATS/ERS
    • IPFUIP Criteria• Reticular abnormality• Honeycombing with or without traction bronchiectasis• Subpleural basal predominance• Absence of features inconsistent with these New IPF criteria – ATS/ERS
    • Lower zone – UIP pattern Upper zone - chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis
    • Long standing sarcoidosis with fibrosis – upper and mid-zone fibrosis
    • Upper zone predominance ofhoneycombing usually implies chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis or long standngparenchymal sarcoidosis with fibrosis
    • IPFUIP CriteriaReticular abnormalityHoneycombing with orwithout tractionbronchiectasisSubpleural basalpredominanceAbsence of other signs likeground glass, nodules, etc New IPF criteria – ATS/ERS
    • If all these criteria are met, then we can confidently make the diagnosis of a UIP pattern
    • New IPF criteria – ATS/ERS
    • This is the new algorithm to make a diagnosis of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)
    • In the presence of a UIP pattern, in the absence of an identifiable cause (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis, familial, etc), the presence of a UIP pattern implies IPF
    • IPFIssues• Complications – neoplasm, infection
    • IPF with superimposed opacity in the left lower lobe – TB on biopsy
    • IPF with progressive consolidation over a year – invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma on biopsy
    • Patients with IPF have an increased incidence of superimposed infection andneoplasm. The HRCTs of patients of IPF on follow-up should beexamined for superimposed / new pathology
    • IPFIssues• Complications – neoplasm, infection• Combined emphysema with fibrosis (CPFE)
    • This patient has both emphysema in the upper lobes and a UIP pattern in the lower lobes
    • This occurs in smokers, with emphysema in the upper lobesand IPF in the lower lobes. It hasa worse prognosis than IPF and clinically can be a challenge to diagnose
    • The next presentation will be on NSIP and other idiopathic interstitial pneumonias
    • Thank You
