PURPOSE: Current guidelines have proposed criteria to diagnose a Usual Interstitial Pneumonia (UIP) pattern on a High Resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT) of the chest and recommend that a definite UIP pattern on chest HRCT obviates the need of a biopsy. However, the criteria have not been prospectively validated. To our knowledge there has been no assessment of the agreement of a UIP pattern amongst chest radiologists. Our objective was to assess the agreement in the diagnosis of UIP between chest radiologists.
