A computer-based quantitative CT Analysis for prediction of disease progression and mortality in interstitial lung disease: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive and irreversible interstitial lung disease that obliterates the lung interstitial tissue. The pattern and rate of disease progression differ from patient to patient. Our research aims to develop a quantitative tool to calculate and analyze novel vascular based biomarkers with the ultimate goal to accurately predict disease progression and mortality in IPF patients.
