Deep Breeze™ Announces Latest Study Results on Vibration Response Imaging (VRI™) at the 18th European Respiratory Society Congress


10/3/2008 8:29:33 AM

BERLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Deep Breeze Ltd, the innovator of the revolutionary pulmonary imaging technology, vibration response imaging (VRI™), today announced the latest study results comparing VRI™ to conventional procedures of assessing regional lung function measurement. Prof. Roberto Bossi, Chief of Center of Sleep respiratory disorders of Foundation IRCCS Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico University of Milano, presented his findings today at the 18th European Respiratory Society Congress, Session 57 (New challenges and maintained quality: lung function for the future), Berlin Room. The study measured the effectiveness of VRI™ for the evaluation of lung function compared to functional respiratory tests, before and after thoracic surgery. Data showed that VRI allows better evaluation of lung volume regional variations after chest lobectomy compared to functional respiratory tests. “The advantages having a non invasive, patient's effort independent, easy to handle and readily available imaging modality for pulmonology are numerous,” said Prof. Bossi. He goes on to say: “A big benefit is that I can monitor and measure the gain or loss of lung function after chest surgery better than functional respiratory test.”
