SESSION TITLE: Connective Tissue-Associated Interstitial Lung Disease

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: A recent study reported that pulmonary function tests (PFTs) have high false negative rates for identification of scleroderma patients with significant interstitial lung disease (ILD) on high resolution CT (HRCT) of chest. A normal FVC was reported in 62.5% of these scleroderma-ILD patients. The objective of this study was to determine the correlation between PFT parameters (Forced Vital capacity [FVC], Total Lung capacity [TLC] and Diffusion Capacity [DLCO]) with the extent of ILD measured by a fibrosis score on HRCT of chest in patients with scleroderma.
