The chest roentgenogram in cystic fibrosis: a new scoring system

Pediatrics. 1979 Jan;63(1):24-9.


A roentgenogram scoring system is presented that is useful in the evaluation and follow-up of patients with cystic fibrosis. The system has been shown to be reproducible by and between observers and to correlate significantly with results of pulmonary function tests, Shwachman-Kulczycki scores, and, in a short-term evaluation, morbidity.
