Abstract Background: The radiologic definition of airway dilatation and bronchiectasis in children has substantial limitations. Bronchoarterial (BA) ratio is a commonly used criterion to define airway dilatation despite the lack of normative pediatric data. The objective of our study was to determine the range of normal bronchial to accompanying arterial diameter ratio on high-resolution CT scan of the chest in children and compare it with the available adult data.
