Vibration Response Imaging in Healthy Subjects
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Passive Acoustic Imaging With the Vibration Response Imaging Device in Healthy Subjects|
|Study Start Date:||December 2004|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||July 2009|
Computerized analyses have shown that normal lung sounds have distinctive characteristic that can be differentiated from abnormal lung sounds.However, technical issues and complicated display modes have restricted the use of computerized lung sound analyses in the clinical environment.
The VRI provides dynamic gray-scale images and quantitative lung data showing the breath sound distribution of healthy individuals. Typical features that are discerned by trained raters and quantitative lung data may serve as a reference for comparison to abnormal breath sound images.
