Clinical, radiographic, and pulmonary function test (PFT) data in tertiary care patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD) will be compared and correlated. ILD is a heterogeneous collection of parenchymal lung illnesses with inflammation and fibrosis. In ILD patients, appropriate diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy planning need understanding the link between clinical symptoms, radiographic findings, and pulmonary function measurements. A retrospective study was performed on ILD patients' medical records who attended the tertiary care centre between [start date] and [end date]. Demographic, symptom, and comorbidity data were obtained. High-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) images were evaluated to determine lung involvement and fibrosis. Pulmonary function was assessed using PFT findings, including spirometry, lung volumes, and diffusion capacity. ILD patients have a variety of clinical manifestations, radiographic patterns, and pulmonary function abnormalities, according to preliminary results. Correlation analysis will reveal possible correlations between these measures, improving ILD diagnosis and treatment algorithms. Further study is needed to confirm these results and identify other ILD disease progression and treatment response variables.
