i am new to this but I find the discussion was very helpful.
I have scaring in the lungs and my Pulmonologist is saying I have IPF or Hyper sensitive pneumonitis .
they want me to do vats biopsy to find out what exactly is that.
could someone tell me how it was diagonised .
I had several ct scans including high density one . They say they can not pin point it from the scan.
biopsy seem to be invasive and I like to avoid it if possible .
but the doctors won't start the treatment without knowing what exactly it is since the course of treatment is different for them.
could some one please let me know how they find out IPF.
