Low-dose CT protocols that impart radiation doses similar to those used in chest radiography are feasible for the surveillance of patients with bronchiectasis. Chest radiography is still most commonly used as the first-line imaging examination of choice for the assessment of acute complications related to bronchiectasis. Pulmonary MRI, with or without the use of inhaled hyperpolarized gas, can be performed to obtain functional information, and, in dedicated centers, it may yield imaging results comparable to those obtained by CT. Gastrointestinal and pancreaticobiliary manifestations of CF are observed with greater frequency in adults, because of increased life expectancy.
