Ultra-Low Dose Computed Tomography For Diagnosis And Follow-Up Of Patients With Diffuse Parenchymal Lung Disease (DPLD)

Study Purpose

The primary intention of this study is to determine the diagnostic performance of ultra-low-dose CT (ULDCT) in diagnosis and follow-up of diffuse parenchymal lung disease (DPLD). We hypothesize that inspiratory and expiratory chest ULDCT has comparable diagnostic yield to standard dose chest High-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) and utility for follow-up of patients with known DPLD. We will study this hypothesis through the following aims: 1. Determine whether inspiratory and expiratory ULDCT are comparable to HRCT in identifying mosaic attenuation due to air-trapping. 2. Determine whether ULDCT is as good as HRCT for follow-up of patients with established DPLD to identify disease progression.

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.


An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.


Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.

NCT04392726
Phase

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
