Alterations of the structure of the airway in pediatric patients can impair the respiratory function of the individual, resulting in several possible life-threatening symptoms. The treatment of such structural anomalies often occurs through surgical intervention or pharmaceutical treatment. Currently, physicians use 2-D images of the airway to develop a plan for surgery and to educate parents on their child’s condition. The predisposition of this method for error requires that a new, more… CONTINUE READING
