Computed tomography findings of arc-welders' pneumoconiosis: Comparison with silicosis.

Summary of "Computed tomography findings of arc-welders' pneumoconiosis: Comparison with silicosis."

Arc-welders' pneumoconiosis (AWP) is a less fibrogenic pneumoconiosis with radiographic shadows that can improve after isolation from dusty environments. Therefore, early diagnosis is important. However, the exact role of chest radiograph and computed tomography (CT) for diagnosing AWP is not fully understood. This study was performed to assess the CT appearance of AWP using semi-quantitative methods and to compare the findings with those of silicosis. The profusion of pulmonary abnormality on chest radiograph were also compared with the semi-quantitative CT score.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.

Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.

Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.

Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.

Tomography using radioactive emissions from injected RADIONUCLIDES and computer ALGORITHMS to reconstruct an image.
