Caption: Asbestosis. Coloured computed tomography (CT) scan of a section through the chest of a 58-year-old construction working, showing diffuse plaques in the lungs (centre left and right). These plaques are likely due to asbestosis, a lung disease caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibres, which cause scarring of the lung tissue. This scarring can take the form of calcified deposits (as seen here) known as plaques. There is no cure for asbestosis.
