- •Chest HRCT allows quantification of ILD both by visual and computed-aided methods.
- •Computed-aided method shows a better performance than the visual scoring system.
- •Computed-aided method improves sensitivity and repeatability of quantitative changes.
- •Computed-aided method is easier and faster to perform.
