A novel CT scoring system differentiates admissions secondary to eosinophilic from non-eosinophilic asthma

Abstract:
Post-mortem studies of patients who have died from asthma show that mucus plugging of the airways is a prominent feature. We have investigated whether this can be identified and quantified on CT scans taken at the time of a severe asthma attack and tested the hypothesis that mucus plugging is specific to attacks associated with a raised blood eosinophil count.
