Ground-glass opacity

ground-glass opacity, ground-glass opacity nodule in lung
In radiology, ground glass opacity GGO is a nonspecific finding on computed tomography CT scans that indicates a partial filling of air spaces in the lungs by exudate or transudate, as well as interstitial thickening or partial collapse of lung alveoli

Possible diseasesedit

The differential diagnosis of the many causes of GGO includes pulmonary edema, infections including cytomegalovirus and Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, various noninfectious interstitial lung diseases such as hypersensitivity pneumonitis, Hamman-Rich syndrome, diffuse alveolar hemorrhage, and cryptogenic organizing pneumonia1
