John Caffey Award. Determination of functional residual capacity from digital radiographs of the normal neonatal chest: studies in a rabbit model.


Spirometric measurement of lung volume in an infant or uncooperative child is often a difficult and time-consuming procedure. Previous investigators have successfully estimated total lung capacity in adults and older children by using chest radiography. The purpose of this study was to assess the accuracy of functional residual capacity (FRC) determination… (More)
