|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Emphysema COPD||Other: Observational study - no intervention|
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Actual Enrollment :||25 participants|
|Official Title:||Distribution of Regional Lung Function, as Determined by the Vibration Response Image Generated by the VRI-2000 System as Compared With Standard Radio-nuclear Method|
|Study Start Date :||February 2004|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||January 2006|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||January 2006|
Patients diagnosed with COPD, by the pulmonologist at the institute,who are referred to undergo ventilation/perfusion scans.
Other: Observational study - no intervention
Observational study - no intervention. Patients underwent VRI recordings and routine V/Q scan.
- Comparison of regional lung vibration energy with regional lung functionTo map regional lung vibration energy in patients with emphysema by using the lung image generated by the VRI system and compare findings to distibution of perfusion and ventilation in standard V/Q scans
- Correlation of vibration lung sound energy with regional lung functions by V/Q scanEvaluate if the regional vibration energy is correlated with regional lung functions, as assessed by V/Q scan
