BACKGROUND Knowledge of the regional deposition of inhaled particles in the nose is important for drug delivery and assessment of the toxicity of inhaled materials. In this study, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) predictions and experimental measurements in a nasal replica cast were used to study regional deposition of inhaled microparticles. METHODS The replica cast was sectioned into six regions of interest based on nasal anatomy: the nasal vestibule, nasal valve, anterior turbinates… CONTINUE READING
