Two comments. HRCT is usually used to scan lungs but in principle some other thin slice high resolution scanning such as that of inner ear can be considered HRCT. The name isn't always used, though. I'd also like to note that most often the lung scan is taken when the patient is in supine postition and not prone. Prone scans are sometimes taken for additional information.
