Dr. John Greene discusses different patterns of consolidation visible on lung imaging and the differential diagnosis for pneumonia in immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients. He reviews CT imaging for ground glass opacities, consolidation, nodular opacities, and nodular cavitary lesions on the lungs. He covers interstitial pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary alveolar proteinosis, community acquired viral and bacterial pneumonia, fungal infections, and mycobacterial infections among others. He specifically discusses nocardia, mycobacterium avium complex and hypersensitivity pneumonitis. He then covers several cases studies and management strategies. His updated talk was originally presented in 2013.
