Asbestos Exposure-CT

CT is more sensitive than clinical evaluation for the detection of asbestosis but is inevitably less sensitive and less specific than pathologic evaluation. For the asbestos-exposed individual, CT is useful for the evaluation of suspected lung masses, particularly rounded atelectasis &  for identifying pleural plaques. CT also will identify and quantify emphysema as a cause of physiologic impairment.

I want to add a small note.

The pictures shown are of asbestos exposure, not asbestosis. As far as I know, asbestosis means interstitial lung disease due to asbestos exposure. Calcified pleural plaques usually will lead to the diagnosis of asbestos exposure, not asbestosis.
