Chest physicians need to be aware about MinIP images, as these are increasingly being used for the evaluation of a wide range of lung diseases in HRCT study of lungs. MinIP images highlight the areas with reduced CT attenuation in the lung parenchyma. This allows prompt and early diagnosis of cystic lung diseases or airway, vascular or parenchymal disorders, which manifest with hypoattenuation, mosaic attenuation or air trapping. MiniP images are therefore useful for accurate pre-operative planning and disease monitoring.
