D-bar methods applied to functional pulmonary imaging: methods and clinical resultsMS20

While clinical images can provide detailed information to physicians for diagnosis or monitoring, the derivation of concise measures is also of clinical importance. In this talk, several such measures for pulmonary assessment derived from EIT images are presented. Functional difference images computed by the D-bar method were used to compute surrogate measures of spirometry output and ventilation-perfusion ratios. Results are shown on data collected on pediatric patients with lung disease.
