Diagnosis of IPF is,
radiologists and pathologists.
The new diagnostic criteria from the Fleischner Society white paper,
along with the clinical guidelines from ATS/ERS/JRS/ALAT provide a common and less ambiguous lexicon for IPF among physicians,
promoting better clinical communication and management of patients.
Since radiological imaging plays a crucial role in diagnosis of IPF,
it is of utmost importance for the radiologist to be comfortable with these diagnostic criteria.
