BACKGROUND The 6-min walk test (6MWT) is a useful tool to assess prognosis and functional impairment in various pulmonary diseases. AIMS To evaluate functional capacity during various stages of pulmonary sarcoidosis and develop a scoring system clinical radiological physiological score (CRP) that can potentially be used to assess the functional status among patients with sarcoidosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed a retrospective study on 26 patients diagnosed with pulmonary sarcoidosis… CONTINUE READING
