Abstract

Pulmonary disorders remain an important complication of HIV infection, even in the current era of potent antiretroviral therapy. Using an integrated approach that combines radiographic pattern recognition with knowledge of a patient's clinical symptoms, laboratory data, immune status level, demographic information, and drug therapy can enhance the interpretation of imaging studies in HIV-infected patients. Although chest radiography remains the mainstay of imaging the HIV-positive patient with respiratory symptoms, CT plays an increasingly important secondary role in selected cases.
