The study successfully evaluated a new developed CF-specific MRI score. Our results show that the MRI-Score
can predict the loss of pulmonary function. Thus, our findings may help that MRI
can serve as a novel predictive marker for loss of lung function in CF and thereby
help to tailor individualized monitoring and treatment strategies.
