Summary: 
Changes on longitudinal CT images performed 15 months apart in a 77-year-old, male never-smoker diagnosed with IPF. Images have been taken at corresponding points in the upper, middle and lower zones (left to right) of the lungs. Using traditional visual CT scoring methods, quantifying total ILD extent to the nearest 5% on each CT time point, an increase in total ILD extent of >5% was not demonstrated, yet the patient demonstrated clinical deterioration. While there is a subtle alteration in the character of the fibrotic regions, it did not equate to a measurable difference in total ILD extent for the whole lung.
