Summary of "Selecting Patients for Lobar Lung Volume Reduction Therapy: What Quantitative Computed Tomography Parameters Matter?"

 Evaluation of emphysema distribution with quantitative computed tomography (qCT) prior to endoscopic lung volume reduction (ELVR) is recommended. The aim of this study was to determine which of the commonly assessed qCT parameters prior to endoscopic lung volume reduction (ELVR) best predicts outcome of treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The lung volume at which the dependent lung zones cease to ventilate presumably as a result of airway closure.

The capability of the LUNGS to distend under pressure as measured by pulmonary volume change per unit pressure change. While not a complete description of the pressure-volume properties of the lung, it is nevertheless useful in practice as a measure of the comparative stiffness of the lung. (From Best & Taylor's Physiological Basis of Medical Practice, 12th ed, p562)

The volume of air contained in the lungs at the end of a maximal inspiration. It is the equivalent to each of the following sums: VITAL CAPACITY plus RESIDUAL VOLUME; INSPIRATORY CAPACITY plus FUNCTIONAL RESIDUAL CAPACITY; TIDAL VOLUME plus INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus functional residual capacity; or tidal volume plus inspiratory reserve volume plus EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus residual volume.

An abnormality in lung development that is characterized by a multicystic mass resulting from an adenomatous overgrowth of the terminal BRONCHIOLES with a consequent reduction of PULMONARY ALVEOLI. This anomaly is classified into three types by the cyst size.

The volume of BLOOD passing through the HEART per unit of time. It is usually expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with STROKE VOLUME (volume per beat).
