PET/CT provides a fusion of both anatomic and functional information. However, because of the temporal difference of both modalities and respiratory motion of lungs, misregistration of lesions is frequently observed on thoracic PET/CT scans. The effect of cine-averaged CT (CACT) acquisition incorporated with the shallow breathing pattern of patients on the improvement of registration and quantification of lesions was investigated.

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...
The variability of the breath-to-breath breathing pattern, and its alterations in disease, may hold information of physiologic and/or diagnostic value. We hypothesized that this variability arises fro...
On theoretical grounds any given level of pulmonary or alveolar ventilation can be obtained at various absolute lung volumes and through many combinations of tidal volume, breathing frequency and insp...

An abnormal pattern of breathing characterized by alternating periods of apnea and deep, rapid breathing. The cycle begins with slow, shallow breaths that gradually increase in depth and rate and is then followed by a period of apnea. The period of apnea can last 5 to 30 seconds, then the cycle repeats every 45 seconds to 3 minutes.
Abnormal breathing through the mouth, usually associated with obstructive disorders of the nasal passages.
Simultaneous and continuous monitoring of several parameters during sleep to study normal and abnormal sleep. The study includes monitoring of brain waves, to assess sleep stages, and other physiological variables such as breathing, eye movements, and blood oxygen levels which exhibit a disrupted pattern with sleep disturbances.
The analysis of a critical number of sensory stimuli or facts (the pattern) by physiological processes such as vision (PATTERN RECOGNITION, VISUAL), touch, or hearing.
Any method of artificial breathing that employs mechanical or non-mechanical means to force the air into and out of the lungs. Artificial respiration or ventilation is used in individuals who have stopped breathing or have RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY to increase their intake of oxygen (O2) and excretion of carbon dioxide (CO2).
