ground glass opacities on convention ct

i had a high resolution ct scan years ago. it showed 3 areas of ground glass opacities.  my pulmo doc only followed it up with regular resolution ct scans.  never again were the ground glass opacities mentioned in these radiology reports.  is this because regular resolution ct scans cant see or pick up ground glass opacities?  also can regular chest xrays pick up ground glass opacities?  do these ground glass opacities if left untreated, turn to scar tissue?
thank you for your help.
