The concept includes proton spin tomographic techniques.Ultrasonography, Prenatal: The visualization of tissues during pregnancy through recording of the echoes of ultrasonic waves directed into the body. The procedure may be applied with reference to the mother or the fetus and with reference to organs or the detection of maternal or fetal disease.Tomography, X-Ray Computed: Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.Organ Size: The measurement of an organ in volume, mass, or heaviness.Erythrocyte Volume: Volume of circulating ERYTHROCYTES . It is usually measured by RADIOISOTOPE DILUTION TECHNIQUE.Enophthalmos: Recession of the eyeball into the orbit.Forced Expiratory Volume: Measure of the maximum amount of air that can be expelled in a given number of seconds during a FORCED VITAL CAPACITY determination . It is usually given as FEV followed by a subscript indicating the number of seconds over which the measurement is made, although it is sometimes given as a percentage of forced vital capacity.Vital Capacity: The volume of air that is exhaled by a maximal expiration following a maximal inspiration.Plasma Volume: Volume of PLASMA in the circulation. It is usually measured by INDICATOR DILUTION TECHNIQUES.Sensitivity and Specificity: Binary classification measures to assess test results. Sensitivity or recall rate is the proportion of true positives. Specificity is the probability of correctly determining the absence of a condition.

- Conclusion: Previous investigators have emphasized the need to measure tidal volume at the ETT for all children. (harvard.edu)
- Future studies of tidal volume measurement accuracy in mechanically ventilated children should control for the degree of ETT leakage. (harvard.edu)
Resistance and lung2
- 1. The inverse relationship between airway resistance and lung volume contributes to variation in measurement of resistance, as it is difficult to control precisely the lung volume at which resistance is determined each time. (clinsci.org)
- 2. Eight normal male subjects had airway resistance and lung volume measured in a body plethysmograph, a mean of seven measurements being made. (clinsci.org)
- To obtain uniform, comparable closing volumes, it is suggested that subjects inspire slowly, control expiratory flow voluntarily and not pause between inspiration and expiration. (cdc.gov)
- Nowadays, spirometric-like measures can be performed in mice by rapidly exposing the airways to a negative pressure in order to generate a forced expiratory flow signal [ 10 ]. (biomedcentral.com)
Specific airway resistance1
- Improvements in airway responsiveness and lung volumes happened in parallel and correlated with reductions of body mass index (r = 0.58, P = 0.049), C-reactive protein levels (r = -0.74, P = 0.004). (unboundmedicine.com)
- Therefore, in order to be able to assess airway responsiveness to aerosolized methacholine, the subjects had to be moved from the FOT device to the FE system during the course of the experiment. (biomedcentral.com)
- Atopy can be distinguished by skin-prick testing, measurement of specific IgE antibodies and, possibly, measurement of peripheral eosinophil counts. (cmaj.ca)
- 9 The present experiments were performed to investigate whether the peripheral lung responses to inhaled methacholine resulted from stimulation of muscarinic cholinergic receptors. (bmj.com)
- This specialized 3D application provides semi-automated segmentation and quantification of lung nodules and can track changes across multiple time points. (appliedradiology.com)
- The whole volume of the lung can be evaluated by submillimetric acquisition allowing 3D reconstructions, and fully automatic quantification measurements are achievable using dedicated software. (hindawi.com)
- The more consistent efficacy of both treatment strategies in preventing BHR than in treating the adverse pulmonary vascular consequences suggests the benefit of both calcium channel blockade and ACE inhibition to counteract the airway susceptibility following a LVD. (biomedcentral.com)
- This package provides features including semi-automated liver segmentation, lesion definition with volume measurement, classification of vasculature, and vascular centerline distance measurements for invasive treatments. (terarecon.com)

- In the pressure step preceding physiologic lung recruitment, a significant reversal of atelectasis occurred in 17% of the dependent lung regions (p = .016). (nih.gov)
- In contrast to the stepwise recruitment maneuver, the sustained inflation did not produce significant changes in atelectasis or oxygenation: atelectasis was only reversed in 12% of the lung (p = .122), and there was only a modest improvement in oxygenation (27 ± 14 mm Hg, p = .088). (nih.gov)
- Reversal of atelectasis in the most dependent lung region preceded improvements in gas exchange during a stepwise lung-recruitment strategy. (nih.gov)
- Larger amounts of atelectasis in dependent lung areas were associated with a positive response to a stepwise lung-recruitment maneuver. (nih.gov)
