Abstract

Interstitial lung disease commonly develops in patients with Systemic sclerosis (SSc). High resolution computed tomography (HRCT) has become the gold standard for detection and evaluation of lung involvement in SSc. Several HRCT scoring methods have been described and used to characterize and quantify the disease. This article reviews the different scoring systems and how they have been validated clinically and applied to prognosticate patients, assess disease progression and evaluate response to treatment.
