Scoring of online cases: The ‘possible UIP’ and ‘inconsistent with UIP’ categories were combined to generate a binary ‘typical UIP or possible UIP/inconsistent with UIP’ score

Binary diagnosis score (Typical UIP or Possible UIP/inconsistent with UIP)Interobserver agreement*
Disease subgroups
 MDT diagnosis—CHP (n=44)0.39
 MDT diagnosis—CTD-ILD (n=51)0.35
 MDT diagnosis—Idiopathic FLD (n=55)0.38
Age subgroups
 Patient age <50 years (n=25)0.31
 Patient age 50–60 years (n=40)0.39
 Patient age 60–70 years (n=48)0.42
 Patient age >70 years (n=37)0.40
  • *Interobserver agreement expressed as Cohen's κ coefficient for this binary categorisation stratified according to multidisciplinary diagnosis and patient age.

  • CHP, chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis; CTD-ILD, connective tissue disease related interstitial lung disease; FLD, fibrotic lung disease; MDT, multidisciplinary team; UIP, usual interstitial pneumonia.
