  • recognize the different basic HRCT appearance patterns of lung disease
  • suggest a diagnosis and differential diagnosis of diffuse interstitial lung diseases (based on the recognition of the appearance patterns and on the study of the distribution pattern)
  • describe the indications and limitations of HRCT in different lung diseases
