Ratio of clinical significance sorted by radiological presentation. Clinical significance per species; presented as a percentage based on the number of cases meeting ATS/IDSA criteria for NTM-PD and the total number of isolates per species. MAC and M. chelonae/abscessus complex, not further specified, were regarded separately. On the left, species of low virulence are found and on the right the most pathogenic species. In the upper bar cases with fibrocavitary changes are depicted, in the middle bar cases with nodular bronchiectatic changes are presented and in the lower bar cases with neither fibrocavitary nor nodular bronchiectatic changes are shown.
