Summary of details of the ILO (2000) International Classification of Radiographs of Pneumoconioses; Appendix F.
Participants in ILO-convened meetings leading to the revised (2000 and 2011) editions of the Classification. This revised (2011) edition of the Guidelines for the use of the ILO International Classification of Radiographs of Pneumoconioses extends the applicability of the Classification to digital radiographic images of the chest, as described in a new chapter 6 (page 14). Chapters 1 through 5 are identical to those that appeared in the preceding (2000) edition of the Guidelines. That text remains applicable as written for classifying conventional film-screen radiographs and the associated sets of ILO standard radiographs remain available from the ILO.
