BACKGROUND With increased survival rates and the consequent emergence of an adult population with cystic fibrosis (CF), developing novel tools for periodic evaluations of these patients has become a new challenge. Thus, we sought to determine the contribution of lung-volume quantification using multidetector computed tomography (CT) in adults with CF and to… CONTINUE READING
