Myocardial strain is an important measure of cardiac function and can be assessed on cardiac magnetic resonance (MR) through the current gold standard of breath-held segmented steady-state free preces...
Multiecho gradient-echo Cartesian MRI characterizes placental oxygenation by quantifying R2*. Previous research was performed at 1.5T using breath-held 2D imaging during later gestational age (GA).
General anesthesia (GA) or sedation has been used to obtain good-quality motion-free breath-hold chest CT scans in young children; however pulmonary atelectasis is a common and problematic accompanime...
To investigate the superiority of free-breathing coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) with 16-cm wide-detector CT for challenging patients who cannot hold their breath.
This paper defines a method for optimizing the breath delineation algorithms used in Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT). In lung EIT the identification of the breath phases is central for generatin...
Study of 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FluGlucoScan) in Patients Receiving a Treatment Planning Study of 3 Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy Guided by Breath Held CT and PET Imaging for Patients With Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
At this time, computed tomography (CT) is the standard tool used at this institution for the staging of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). For most patients, treatment planning for NSCLC...
Comparison of the researchers' standard nebulizer and a breath actuated nebulizer to examine if breathing medication can be delivered more quickly and as effectively or more effectively th...
This study will determine how breathing motions may affect positron emission tomography (PET) scans. It has been discovered that the quality of PET scans varies according to which part of ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the interest of breath holding for the prevention of radiation pneumonitis following conformal radiation therapy. Eligible patients will be random...
The primary objective of this study is to develop and validate simultaneous free-breathing 4D fat and water quantification and quantitative dynamic contrast enhanced perfusion in the liver...
The vital life force in the body, supposedly able to be regulated by acupuncture. It corresponds roughly to the Greek pneuma, the Latin spiritus, and the ancient Indian prana. The concept of life-breath or vital energy was formulated as an indication of the awareness of man, originally directed externally toward nature or society but later turned inward to the self or life within. (From Comparison between Concepts of Life-Breath in East and West, 15th International Symposium on the Comparative History of Medicine - East and West, August 26-September 3, 1990, Shizuoka, Japan, pp. ix-x)
An involuntary or voluntary pause in breathing, sometimes accompanied by loss of consciousness.
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
A viral disorder characterized by high FEVER, dry COUGH, shortness of breath (DYSPNEA) or breathing difficulties, and atypical PNEUMONIA. A virus in the genus CORONAVIRUS is the suspected agent.
A clinical syndrome characterized by palpitation, SHORTNESS OF BREATH, labored breathing, subjective complaints of effort and discomfort, all following slight PHYSICAL EXERTION. Other symptoms may be DIZZINESS, tremulousness, SWEATING, and INSOMNIA. Neurocirculatory asthenia is most typically seen as a form of anxiety disorder.
