OBJECTIVES To determine whether the airway structure of infants and young children with cystic fibrosis (CF) differs from that of normal children by using high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) imaging. Study design Full-inflation, controlled ventilation HRCT images of the lungs were obtained at four anatomic levels in 34 infants with CF (age, 2.4+/-1.4 years) and 20 control infants (age, 1.8+/-1.4 years). Short axis diameters of all clearly identifiable, round airway/vessel pairs were… CONTINUE READING
