Role of medical and molecular imaging in COPD

First Author: Myc LA, Last Author: Dimastromatteo J

"3D ventilation/perfusion SPECT imaging procedures have been used to help diagnosis. COPD patients have also been evaluated using Technegas (99mTc-labelled carbon particles). Technegas has the potential to provide valuable information for the diagnosis of COPD as it has been demonstrated to correlate positively with spirometric lung function."
