Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), which
encompasses chronic bronchitis and emphysema, impedes normal breathing. Chronic
bronchitis inflames and scars the bronchial tubes and, over time, can thicken
the airway wall and restrict normal airflow. Emphysema destroys lung tissue,
particularly the alveoli, impeding the normal exchange of oxygen and carbon
dioxide in the blood. Making quantitative measurements of COPD’s extent can
help referring physicians and patients develop better regimens for managing
Thoracic VCAR gives you the ability to make quantitative measurements of
the lungs to aid in the diagnosis of lung disease. The application blends automated
lung and airway segmentation with basic review and advanced lung tissue
analysis. Using Thoracic VCAR you can generate a clear, concise report that
communicates vital medical information to referring physicians and patients..
