This study investigated the relative contribution of asbestos-related pleural thickening (PT) to lung function indices and to respiratory symptoms. A group of 828 former asbestos cement workers enrolled in a cross-sectional and cohort study of respiratory morbidity and submitted to a detailed occupational history, respiratory symptoms questionnaire, spirometry, postero-anterior chest x-ray, and high-resolution computed chest tomography (HRCT). Asbestos exposure was assessed by years of exposure… Expand
