14th Australian Cystic Fibrosis Conference

Novel Lung Imaging Technology with Potential to Improve Cystic Fibrosis Patient Care

DATE
30-31 October
TIME
TBA

SUMMARY

Understanding the determinants of ventilation defects and ventilation heterogeneity may lead to more efficacious treatments for both acute and chronic lung diseases. Providing additional insights into the pathophysiology of disease progression may help monitor treatments to improve long-term outcomes for patients. This symposium addresses state-of-the-art, non-invasive lung imaging used to determine functional deficits in regional lung motion and airflow.
