PURPOSE To evaluate the repeatability of quantitative computed tomographic (CT) indexes of emphysema and the effect of spirometric gating of lung volume during CT in candidates for lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Initial and same-day repeat routine inspiratory spiral chest CT studies were performed in 29 LVRS candidates (group 1, routine study vs repeat study). In a separate cohort of 29 LVRS candidates, spiral chest CT studies were performed both without and with… CONTINUE READING
