30th Annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference

W25: CLIN-NT: Imaging Modalities in CF

Oct 29, 2016 10:30am ‐ Oct 29, 2016 11:50am

Standard: $49.99

Description

The role of imaging as an outcome measure in cystic fibrosis research and clinical care is increasing through introduction of new techniques and maturation of existing methods. This session showcases some recent work in developing these tools and comparing them with alternative biomarkers of lung disease such as lung clearance index.

Educational Objectives:
  • Describe the potential role of hyperpolarized gas MRI in characterizing CF lung disease.
  • Compare the performance of MRI with CT in assessing CF lung disease.
  • Summarize the effectiveness of MRI compared with lung clearance index in assessing mild CF lung disease.
