Radiology of Bronchiectasis


• On computed tomographic imaging, bronchiectasis appearances and distribution within the lung can suggest the underlying disease cause • Visual scores of bronchiectasis-related damage are limited in their ability to simultaneously consider disease extent and severity • Computer analysis of computed tomographic imaging may be a sensitive measure of disease burden and disease progression over time • MRI of the lung can provide functional and structural information and has an important role in the evaluation of young patients and the early detection of lung damage
