Read the full article by Sverzellati et al: http://dx.doi.org/10.1148/rg.2015140334 (RadioGraphics 2015;35:1849-1871) Summary: The updated IIP classification emphasizes integration of clinical, CT, and pathologic findings for multidisciplinary diagnosis. The revision advances understanding of IIPs and other interstitial lung diseases. In the November-December 2015 issue of RadioGraphics, one of our three articles on chest imaging reviews the 2013 American Thoracic Society-European Respiratory Society update on the classification of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs). The authors of this article include radiologists, a pulmonologist, and a pulmonary pathologist who describe the organization of the IIPs into four groups: chronic fibrosing IIPs (idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and idiopathic nonspecific interstitial pneumonia), smoking-related IIPs (respiratory bronchiolitis–associated interstitial lung disease and desquamative interstitial pneumonia), acute or subacute IIPs (cryptogenic organizing pneumonia and acute interstitial pneumonia), and rare IIPs (lymphoid interstitial pneumonia and idiopathic pleuroparenchymal fibroelastosis). The article includes a table (Table 1) that details the key radiologic features and differential diagnosis of the IIPs. An important component is the list of CT findings such as the presence of cysts, perilymphatic or centrilobular nodules, tree-in-bud opacities, and mosaic attenuation that suggest a diagnosis of a non-IIP entity (Table 3). Dr. Theresa McLoud of the Massachusetts General Hospital provides expert commentary on the article: http://dx.doi.org/10.1148/rg.2015150034 (RadioGraphics 2015;35:1871-1872) c) 2015 The Radiological Society of North America http://rsna.org/RadioGraphics

Typically symptoms include some combination of productive or dry cough, chest pain, fever, and trouble breathing. Severity is variable.Pneumonia is usually caused by infection with viruses or bacteria and less commonly by other microorganisms, certain medications and conditions such as autoimmune diseases. Risk factors include other lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis, COPD, and asthma, diabetes, heart failure, a history of smoking, a poor ability to cough such as following a stroke, or a weak immune system. Diagnosis is often based on the symptoms and physical examination. Chest X-ray, blood tests, and culture of the sputum may help confirm the diagnosis. The disease may be classified by where it was acquired with community, hospital, or health care associated pneumonia.Vaccines to prevent certain types of pneumonia are available. Other methods of prevention include handwashing and not smoking. Treatment depends on the underlying cause. Pneumonia believed to be due to bacteria is treated with antibiotics. If the pneumonia is severe, the affected person is generally hospitalized. Oxygen therapy may be used if oxygen levels are low.Pneumonia affects approximately 450 million people globally (7% of the population) and results in about 4 million deaths per year. Pneumonia was regarded by William Osler in the 19th century as "the captain of the men of death". With the introduction of antibiotics and vaccines in the 20th century, survival improved. Nevertheless, in developing countries, and among the very old, the very young, and the chronically ill, pneumonia remains a leading cause of death. Pneumonia often shortens suffering among those already close to death and has thus been called "the old man's friend".

There are two main types of stroke: ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic, due to bleeding. They result in part of the brain not functioning properly. Signs and symptoms of a stroke may include an inability to move or feel on one side of the body, problems understanding or speaking, dizziness, or loss of vision to one side. Signs and symptoms often appear soon after the stroke has occurred. If symptoms last less than one or two hours it is known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or mini-stroke. A hemorrhagic stroke may also be associated with a severe headache. The symptoms of a stroke can be permanent. Long-term complications may include pneumonia or loss of bladder control.The main risk factor for stroke is high blood pressure. Other risk factors include tobacco smoking, obesity, high blood cholesterol, diabetes mellitus, a previous TIA, and atrial fibrillation. An ischemic stroke is typically caused by blockage of a blood vessel, though there are also less common causes. A hemorrhagic stroke is caused by either bleeding directly into the brain or into the space between the brain's membranes. Bleeding may occur due to a ruptured brain aneurysm. Diagnosis is typically based on a physical exam and supported by medical imaging such as a CT scan or MRI scan. A CT scan can rule out bleeding, but may not necessarily rule out ischemia, which early on typically does not show up on a CT scan. Other tests such as an electrocardiogram (ECG) and blood tests are done to determine risk factors and rule out other possible causes. Low blood sugar may cause similar symptoms.Prevention includes decreasing risk factors, as well as possibly aspirin, statins, surgery to open up the arteries to the brain in those with problematic narrowing, and warfarin in those with atrial fibrillation. A stroke or TIA often requires emergency care. An ischemic stroke, if detected within three to four and half hours, may be treatable with a medication that can break down the clot. Aspirin should be used. Some hemorrhagic strokes benefit from surgery. Treatment to try to recover lost function is called stroke rehabilitation and ideally takes place in a stroke unit; however, these are not available in much of the world.In 2013 approximately 6.9 million people had an ischemic stroke and 3.4 million people had a hemorrhagic stroke.
