Interstitial Lung Disease Clinic

 

The department includes expertise in the diagnosis and management of many forms of lung fibrosis including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and sarcoidosis. A twice monthly specialised interstitial lung disease clinic has been implemented to group physicians such as respiratory and rheumatology physicians with expertise in the diagnosis and management of interstitial lung disease. Investigations are similar to those outlined in the general respiratory clinic section. You may also be asked to do an indoor walking test called a six minute walk test with our specialist physiotherapist so please wear comfortable shoes.
