Nevertheless, many diffuse lung diseases are characterized by one of these radiographic patterns, and the particular pattern may provide clues about the underlying type or cause of disease.

Brushes are frequently passed into diseased areas of the lung parenchyma, and the material collected by the bristles is subjected to cytologic and microbiologic analysis.
