RATIONALE There is limited knowledge about the relationship between respiratory symptoms and quantitative high-resolution computed tomography measures of emphysema and airway wall thickness. OBJECTIVES To describe the ability of these measures of emphysema and airway wall thickness to predict respiratory symptoms in subjects with and without chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). METHODS We included 463 subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (65% men) and 488… CONTINUE READING
