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.

Many studies have attempted to clarify the association between TNF-a -308G/A polymorphism and pneumoconiosis, but there has been no definite consensus to date. To further assess the effects of TNF-a -...
Accuracy of Quantification of Iodine and Hounsfield Unit Values on Virtual Monochromatic Imaging Using Dual-Energy Computed Tomography: Comparison of Dual-Layer Computed Tomography With Fast Kilovolt-Switching Computed Tomography.
The aim of the study was to compare the accuracy of quantification of iodine and Hounsfield unit (HU) values on virtual monochromatic imaging (VMI) using dual-layer computed tomography (DLCT) and fast...
There is no imaging standard to model nasal cartilage for the planning of rhinoplasty procedures. Preoperative visualization of cartilage may improve objective evaluation of nasal deformities, surgica...
Preoperative detection of bone invasion is important in cases of gingival cancer. The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic value of 3 imaging methods for the detection of bone invasion in u...
Computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) detects incidental findings that require follow-up. In just over 50% of cases, those incidental findings are pulmonary nodules. Fleischner guidelines r...
Objectives: This study aims to explore the risk profiles among people with silicosis in Hong Kong underpinned by the Pittsburgh Mind-Body Center model. Design and subjects: This study wil...
Pneumoconiosis is a kind of lung disease due to inhalation of dust such as silica(common named Silicosis), coal and rock dust, characterized by inflammation, coughing, and fibrosis. Curren...
The aim of this study was to analyze the safety, pulmonary function, and quality of life data of patients with silicosis treated with intrabronchial instillation of bone marrow derived mon...
Open, Prospective Pilot Study to Obtain Aerosol Distribution in Asthmatic Patients Using Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) for Comparison With Functional Imaging Using Computer Methods
In this open prospective study, 6 well controlled asthmatic patients will undergo a high-resolution multi-slice computed tomography (CT) scan, lung function tests and a SPECT scan to obtai...
The primary aim of this study is to investigate the use of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) for breast imaging in the diagnostic setting by providing a compelling body of evidence inco...
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.
