Improved lung visualization for COPD patients

Currently, COPD is assessed with pulmonary function tests, which produce some useful quantitative parameters of pulmonary function but do not provide a visualization of how pulmonary function varies throughout different areas of the lung. A new technology is using x-ray technology to fill this gap and provide better visualization of the lung in COPD patients. FDA approval is still pending.
