I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of a chest x-ray or CAT scan being used to diagnose CF. The reason I am asking is because I was sent to a pulmonary specialist in March and he ordered those tests and said they would show him if I had CF. I had a sweat test when I was a baby and it came back negative but then I started having problems with sinus infections and bronchitis and he was the second doctor that CF popped into their head when trying to figure out what was wrong. I asked my aunt who had a daughter with CF that passsed away July 4 and she had never heard of it.
