Structural and functional lung disease in primary ciliary dyskinesia.
BACKGROUND High-resolution CT (HRCT) scan data on primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) related lung disease are scarce. STUDY OBJECTIVES We evaluated the lung disease in children and adults with PCD byExpand

Magnetic resonance imaging is an accurate and reliable method to evaluate non‐cystic fibrosis paediatric lung disease
Background and objective:  Chest MRI is increasingly used to assess pulmonary diseases, but its utility compared with high‐resolution computed tomography (HRCT) has never been evaluated in childrenExpand

Assessment of Chest High-Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Children and Young Adults With Noncystic Fibrosis Chronic Lung Disease: Comparison to High-Resolution Computed Tomography and Correlation
Objectives:Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been proposed as a radiation-free alternative to high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) for the assessment and follow-up of chest disorders. ThusExpand

Upper airway obstructive disease in mucopolysaccharidoses: Polysomnography, computed tomography and nasal endoscopy findings
SummaryIn mucopolysaccharidoses, upper airway obstruction has multiple causative factors and progressive respiratory disease may severely affect morbidity and mortality. In a cross-sectional studyExpand

A Descriptive Study of Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis in a Pediatric Population from Central and Southern Italy
Background: Non-cystic fibrosis (CF) bronchiectasis is now identified more often than in the past. Objectives: It was the aim of this study to assess the high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT)Expand

Nasal nitric oxide assessment in primary ciliary dyskinesia using aspiration, exhalation, and humming.
BACKGROUND Several studies reported low nasal nitric oxide (nNO) levels in subjects with primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) and proposed nNO measurement as a diagnostic tool to screen for the disease.Expand

Noninvasive investigation of hepatopulmonary syndrome in children and adolescents with chronic cholestasis
Early detection of hepatopulmonary syndrome (HPS) may be delayed because of invasiveness of the diagnostic procedures. In this pilot study, we prospectively investigated the usefulness of determiningExpand

Progression of lung disease in primary ciliary dyskinesia: Is spirometry less accurate than CT?
Despite its extensive use, there is no evidence that spirometry is useful in the assessment of progression of lung disease in primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD). We hypothesize that high‐resolutionExpand
