The purpose of the study is to see if imaging with [18F]FDG and [18F]DPA-714 using positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET/CT) will show lung inflammation and fibrosis in patients diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). This study may help physicians and researchers better understand how best to treat patients with IPF in the future.
