Using computed tomography (CT), geometrical changes in pulmonary structures in 4 human volunteers were analyzed. A series of parallel transaxial CT scans of the lung were obtained for each volunteer while he held his breath at maximal inspiration and maximal expiration. Changes in pulmonary structures were evaluated by comparing the maximal inspiration scans for each slice position. The longitudinal displacement of the lung volume was categorized as either a rib cage displacement or a diaphragm… CONTINUE READING
