Pulmonary perfusion quantified by electron-beam computed tomography: effects of hypoxia and inhaled NO.


Patients with acute lung injury may benefit from the manipulation of pulmonary blood flow using inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) to optimise ventilation/perfusion matching. Current techniques for studying changes in regional pulmonary perfusion are difficult to apply clinically. This study therefore investigated the potential of electron-beam computed tomography… (More)
