Understanding of the
determinants of ventilation defects and ventilation heterogeneity may lead to
more efficacious treatments for acute and chronic lungs diseases and can
provide an additional approach for monitoring treatments to improve long-term
outcomes for patients. X-ray velocimetry imaging and analysis can reveal
ventilation defects in a similar manner to hyperpolarized gas imaging, as well
as provide quantitative detail of airflow within each airway. Data identifying
the level and the location of changes in local airflow throughout the lung that
are produced by the disease or treatments may augment the functional clinical
information currently provided primarily by spirometry. The potential is high
for functional imaging to more effectively and efficiently identify and
differentiate factors in various lung regions that contribute to respiratory
compromise. This symposium addresses state-of-the-art, non-invasive lung
imaging used to determine functional deficits in regional lung motion and
