BACKGROUND Airway remodeling in asthma and COPD results in bronchial wall thickening. The thickness of the bronchial wall can be measured in high-resolution computed tomography. The objectives of the study were to assess the bronchial lumen and wall dimensions in asthma and COPD patients, in relation to disease severity, and to compare the airway dimensions in patients with asthma and COPD. METHODS Ten asthma subjects and 12 COPD subjects with stable, mild to moderate disease were… CONTINUE READING
