Connective Tissue Disease Associated ILD
Cornelia Schaefer-Prokop, Amersfoort/NL

This webinar will describe the HRCT patterns seen in connective diseases including UIP, NSIP but also LIP and OP. Special emphasis will be on features that help to differentiate ILD caused by systemic diseases from idiopathic ILD. In CTD interstitial lung disease can be combined with airway disease and pleural disease, suggesting a multicompartment syndrome. The clinical diagnosis of “interstitial lung disease with autoimmune features (IPAF)” will be discussed. Prognostic CT factors such as extent of fibrosis and bronchiectasis, signs of pulmonary hypertension as well as progression of fibrosis will be described. Finally most recent publications of new treatment options are presented.

Learning Objectives
– to get familiar with the patterns of interstitial lung disease associated with connective tissue diseases (CTD)
– to learn which combination of findings are – though not specific – are typically seen in which type of CTD and can be helpful in the differentiation from idiopathic ILD
– to learn about the CT findings with prognostic implications
