  • * Expressed as mortality change per 10% increase in area of attenuation with traction bronchiectasis on high-resolution CT.

  • APACHE II, acute physiology and chronic health evaluation II; ARDS, acute respiratory distress syndrome; HRCT, high-resolution CT; LDH, lactate dehydrogenase; SOFA, sequential organ failure assessment.
