Airway remodeling can be assessed using high-resolution computerized tomography (HRCT) scanning of both parenchymal-and airway abnormalities in patients with asthma. The aim of this study was to examine structural changes in large and small airways of asthmatic patients using HRCT to determine if remodeling changes had occurred after prolonged use of conventional anti-asthma therapy. HRCT scans were evaluated prospectively for evidence of the following abnormalities: bronchial wall thickening… CONTINUE READING
