OBJECTIVE The purposes of this study were to compare airway wall attenuation in subjects with asthma and subjects without asthma; to correlate this value with pulmonary function test results, standard bronchial CT parameters, and immunohistologic data; and to identify CT parameters that influence obstructive indexes. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Bronchial airway… CONTINUE READING
