Latest 4D Technology To Be The Cure For Unhealthy Lungs: Research
4D Can Prove to be a Great Medicine!
About the 4D Technology
Since the existing tools are outdated to check lung problems, a 4-D lung scanning technology is recently introduced by a team of Australian researchers that has possibilities of renovating treatments for lung ailments around the globe.
The new four-dimensional scanner now makes it possible to produce high-resolution images of the airflow through lungs and motion of lung tissue. Not only does it help to keep in check the abnormal function in lung areas, but hampers the progress of any likely lung disease beforehand. 4 D technology helps to display a clear picture of the status of the patient’s lungs.
Quotes from Business Standards
Dr. Rajeev Samarage, joint lead author from Monash’s Laboratory for Dynamic Imaging stated, “With this technology, not only will clinicians have a clearer image of what is happening in the patient’s lungs, but it is our aim to detect changes in lung function much earlier than in the past, which will allow clinicians to quantify the effects of treatment by simply comparing measurements from one scan to the next.”
“Our game-changing diagnostic tool offers images of the breathing lungs, making it possible to see what is really important – not what they look like – but how they work,” Andreas Fouras, Professor at Monash University in Victoria, Australia said.
Professor Greg Snell, Head of Lung Transplant Service at the Alfred hospital in Melbourne identified the significance of this step and further said, “This technology has great potential as a new tool for both early diagnosis and management of many very common lung conditions. I think this will be the start of a new way of thinking about diagnostic imaging.”
This study was a part of the published material in the journal Scientific Reports.
