4D Medical Reveals New Lung Scanner at RSNA
Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2022 meeting attendees are invited to visit 4DMedical’s conference booth #2768 to see 4DMedical, a Woodland Hills, Calif. – based medical technology company and creator of the world’s most advanced medical imaging technology. 4DMedical will be unveiling its XV Scanner, the world’s first dedicated lung scanner, at RSNA.
The XV scanner, which integrates 4DMedical’s XV Technology, represents a significant step forward in lung diagnostics. The new imaging tool allows physicians to detect areas of high and low ventilation with pinpoint accuracy across all parts of the lung, in all phases of the breath. The resulting ventilation report is extremely clear and easily understood by providing clinicians with a color-coded and dynamic visualization of the patient’s breathing lung, enhanced with four-dimensional animation. For the first time ever, it enables highly detailed maps of pulmonary function to be created from a scan captured in 5 seconds using less radiation than a typical chest x-ray.
The XV Technology software automatically analyzes and applies its proprietary algorithms to identify and quantify regional functional impairment in both lungs. The resulting report numerically quantifies and graphically displays the regional impairments, which can then be used by clinicians to better understand the patient’s current functional state and assess the most effective therapeutic action.
4DMedical’s XV Technology is a cloud subscription service that can be implemented immediately with no capital expenditure by using existing hospital and clinical infrastructure. Imaging departments electronically transmit radiographic images collected with existing X-ray fluoroscopy equipment to 4DMedical.
Vanderbilt University is an example of an institution using the XV Technology software with its existing imaging substructure to research Deployment Related Respiratory Disease (DRRD) in US veterans exposed to burn pits.
