To implement a new method of performing chest CT imaging in young children at Packard Children's Hospital entitled controlled ventilation infant/young child chest CT scanning. This technique will be used to evaluate early lung disease comparing quantitative chest CT air trapping and airway measurements with lung function measurements in infants, toddlers, and young children with chronic lung disease.

Condition Intervention
Lung Cancer
Procedure: Intubation with a cuffed ET Tube
Procedure: CT scan Radiation

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Quantitative CT air trapping & airway measurements [ Time Frame: 6 mo ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Functional residual capacity (FRC) & Lung Clearance Index (LCI). [ Time Frame: 6 mo ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Differences between Quantitative CT air trapping & airway measurements & multibreath washout (MBW) FRC and LCI. [ Time Frame: 6 mo ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Correlation between LCI and quantitative air trapping [ Time Frame: 6 mo ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Correlation between bronchial wall thickness measurements/bronchiectasis measurements and LCI/FRC [ Time Frame: 6 mo ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Study Population
infants/young children with cystic fibrosis, primary ciliary dyskinesia, or other chronic lung disease, followed at our CF Center or Pulmonary Clinics

Inclusion Criteria:1) Infants and young children (age <= 3 months to < 5 years) and either 2) or 3) below.

2) Respiratory condition (e.g. cystic fibrosis (CF), primary ciliary dyskinesia, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, asthma, or other pulmonary condition) and under the care of a pediatric pulmonologist at LPCH.

3) Oncology condition (e.g. young children with or without cancer, who are being screened for lung metastasis) and are being followed by pediatric oncologists at LPCH.

4) For minors, informed consent by parent or legal guardian.

5) Ability to comply with study visit procedures as judged by the investigator.

Exclusion Criteria:1) Acute wheezing and/or respiratory distress at Study visit.

2) Acute intercurrent respiratory infection, defined as an increase in cough, wheezing, or respiratory rate with onset in 1 week preceding Study visit.

3) Oxygen saturation < 90% on room air at study visit.

4) Any medical condition that in the opinion of the investigator precludes subject participation.
