This workshop will review clinical research on the evaluation and treatment of pulmonary manifestations of cystic fibrosis. The research presented will include predictors of disease severity and response to treatment as well as a novel imaging technique utilizing magnetic resonance. The session will also explore how the addition of therapies such as hypertonic saline and ivacaftor may benefit cystic fibrosis patients.
