A chest X-ray may give some clues in the form of lower zone bi-basal reticular and reticulonodular opacities. HRCT(high resonance CT chest) may give us diagnosis and pulmonary function tests, which reveal the efficiency of a patient's breathing mechanism, may give other indications.so xray chest can give us a clue of fibrosis.
