Gaining a four-dimensional view on lung health

For the first time, XV Technology allows doctors review lung health with greater certainty and less reliance on symptom indicators – by measuring lung performance.

With pinpoint accuracy at 10,000 data points within the lung, it captures ventilation during natural breathing, and provides clear measurements for assessing lung function at a regional level.

Unlike other imaging systems that capture lungs at a single moment in time, XV Technology is a dynamic imaging modality, to produce a complete view of the lungs in motion.

The result is a 4D colour-coded ventilation map, and other key data metrics that provide clear insights into the functional health of your lungs in every region – and a 4D view of your lung health.
