The increased sensitivity and specificity of high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) has allowed medical imaging to become an essential part of the diagnosis and management of interstitial lung disease (ILD). ILD is a common finding of many different collagen vascular diseases (CVDs) especially rheumatoid arthritis and scleroderma. As our understanding of CVD-associated ILD (CVD-ILD) improves, HRCT becomes an increasingly important tool for diagnosis and management.

Keywords: Acute interstitial pneumonia, collagen vascular disease, high-resolution computed tomography, interstitial lung disease, lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia, nonspecific interstitial pneumonia, organizing pneumonia, usual interstitial pneumonia.
