October 23, 2007 - Deep Breeze Ltd. recently announced that its VRIxp lung imaging system will now be available in the U.S., reportedly allowing healthcare providers to see and monitor lung sounds without exposing the patient to radiation or an invasive procedure.
The noninvasive and radiation-free lung Imaging system records lung sounds from sensors applied to a patient's back. The system then uses an algorithm to convert these data into images. Changes in tissue composition and airflow affect the vibration of sounds within the lung, which is reflected on the image of the VRIxp system. This information on the patient's lung condition enables the physician to manage and monitor central airway problems.
