Regular CT vs HRCT

Thank you Sue.
Yes, the Radiologist had the previous "regular" CT to compare to. I just don't understand how it would show on the Regular CT but the HRCT, which as I understand gives a higher quality image, did not show it? Can tree in bud "disappear"?

I have not seen my doctor yet since the scan but she tends to blow me off anyway so I try not to ask her much.

Maybe your are misinterpreting? I read "No tree in bud changes" [when compared to the previous scan] not "No tree in bud" [exists]. I would say that means nothing changed and it looks the same as before. What do you think?

If you feel that way, I'd look for a new pulminologist. Why did they order a HRCT?
