Research Grants

At 4DMedical, we are committed to supporting lung health through clinical research.

Our transformative technology can be made available to researchers investigating aspects of pulmonary medicine, particularly in a surveillance / monitoring role. We also sustain research into novel approaches to functional lung imaging.
The principal research and academic partner of 4DMedical is the University of Melbourne and we welcome discussion regarding use of our XV Technology in investigations by researchers from that institution, via the research offices of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, and the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.
Through our close relationship with the American Thoracic Society (ATS), we regularly offer <>.

A Novel Approach to Functional Lung Imaging

X-ray velocimetry (XV Technology) is four-dimensional imaging (in three spatial dimensions, plus time) which uses the shift in the phase of an X-ray as it passes through an object. Phase shifts in X-rays are then enhanced at air-tissue interfaces. Therefore, the exact properties of the lung that make it impossible to image by other advanced imaging techniques actually make it ideal for XV Technology’s phase-contrast imaging.

Lung Ventilation Analysis Software

XV Technology’s Lung Ventilation Analysis Software (XV LVAS) provides a novel, non-invasive way of understanding regional lung motion and airflow. It enables highly-detailed maps of both the patterns of lung motion and pulmonary function, with functional deficits detected through local (regional) differences in movement.
How could XV Technology be deployed in the clinic?


In preclinical studies, XV Technology has been used extensively to examine regional ventilation in disease models for Cystic Fibrosis, Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, chronic lung allograft dysfunction, Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, and Lymphangioleiomyomatosis.
