  • Software May Predict IPF Progression Based on Chest Scans

    Posted by Pulmonary Fibrosis News Moderator on February 17, 2020 at 8:04 am

    Pulmonary Fibrosis News Columnist and Forum Moderator Charlene Marshall reads an article formulated from a study focused on assessing the severity and progression of IPF based on chest scans.

    Before being diagnosed with IPF nearly four years ago, Charlene Marshall remembers the process of all the diagnostic testing used to help physicians understand why she felt so fatigued and short of breath. Upon learning she would need a high-resolution CT scan (HRCT), Charlene was frustrated that even more imaging was needed to help the doctors understand her symptoms. It was only later that she realized how instrumental HRCT’s scans are in diagnosing IPF.

    In your effort to receive an accurate diagnosis for your symptoms, was an HRCT scan conducted to determine you had IPF/PF? How often do you get HRCT scans?

    Listen to this episode and let us know your thoughts about it:

    Is it possible to post the transcripts of the podcasts? I don’t absorb the details from listening to an article being read. I need to read and possibly reread it several times for the information to “sink in”.  Thanks.

    Hi Terry,

    Thanks for your comment on the flash briefings — good point! When I record the flash briefings, I read from a news article previously published on the PF News website so you should be able to track them down on their homepage. Here is the one for this flash briefing: https://pulmonaryfibrosisnews.com/2020/02/10/caliper-software-may-predict-ipf-progression-based-on-chest-scans/
