What is CT Lung Density Analysis?
CT Lung Density Analysis (LDA) is a quantitative imaging biomarker to assist in the diagnosis and management of COPD. This groundbreaking imaging software analyzes a patient’s lung function as they inhale and exhale and enables physicians to more accurately diagnose and treat the disease. Once again, our radiologists lead the way for excellence in patient diagnoses and care.
A new non-invasive imaging technique identifies small abnormalities in the airways of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
The technique, Parametric Response Mapping (PRM), measures patients’ lung densities as they inhale and exhale. In the past, it has traditionally been difficult to detect small airway disease early without surgery.
