To identify the correlation between readiological features of silicosis, assessed by computed tomography (CT), and the Hong Kong Pneumoconiosis Medical Board grading of DOI in silicosis patients in Hong Kong; to develop a morphometric CT assessment system to examine the lungs of patients with silicosis; to study the correlation of the ILO radiographic classification and the newly established morphometric CT assesment of silicosis with the DOI grades.
