Shape and Dimensions of the Upper Airway in Infants Using Computed Tomography Imaging

2016-10-06 00:38:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Cricoid is considered the narrowest part with the shape of airway defined as elliptical with the subglottis as the narrowest region.

This study using imaging modality (2D CT images) is done to determine any differences in airway shape between infants and children, and to evaluate the dimensional transition between the subglottic area and the cricoid ring.

Description

Using imaging modalities (CT, MRI), the funnel-shape of the airway in children has been questioned and subglottis rather than cricoid is considered the narrowest part with the shape of airway defined as elliptical with the subglottis as the narrowest region.

This is the first study using imaging modality (2D CT images) to determine the airway shape and dimensions in neonates and infants. The purpose of this investigation was to determine any differences in airway shape between infants and children, and to evaluate the dimensional transition between the subglottic area and the cricoid ring.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.

Performing the role of a parent by care-giving, nurturance, and protection of the child by a natural or substitute parent. The parent supports the child by exercising authority and through consistent, empathic, appropriate behavior in response to the child's needs. PARENTING differs from CHILD REARING in that in child rearing the emphasis is on the act of training or bringing up the children and the interaction between the parent and child, while parenting emphasizes the responsibility and qualities of exemplary behavior of the parent.

A method of differentiating individuals based on the analysis of qualitative or quantitative biological traits or patterns. This process which has applications in forensics and identity theft prevention includes DNA profiles or DNA fingerprints, hand fingerprints, automated facial recognition, iris scan, hand geometry, retinal scan, vascular patterns, automated voice pattern recognition, and ultrasound of fingers.

The training or bringing-up of children by parents or parent-substitutes. It is used also for child rearing practices in different societies, at different economic levels, in different ethnic groups, etc. It differs from PARENTING in that in child rearing the emphasis is on the act of training or bringing up the child and the interaction between the parent and child, while parenting emphasizes the responsibility and qualities of exemplary behavior of the parent.

The psychiatric, sociological and psychological study and treatment of the developing child with emphasis on preventive or prophylactic measures focused on the familial, educational and socio-environmental milieu of the child.
