The purpose

In this multicenter study the comparison of the mass flow distribution and redistribution versus the relative blood flow per lobe (as a surrogate for Ventilation/ Perfusion (V/Q) matching) with functional respiratory imaging (FRI) and arterial blood gas (ABG) values will be evaluated in hypercapnic Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) patients. Therefore a low dose Computed Tomography (CT) scan will be taken in a population of 30 patients with non-invasive ventilation (NIV) and in a control group of 10 patients without NIV. The CT-scan will be used for FRI.

Provided treatments

  • Radiation: Functional Respiratory Imaging
  • Other: Lung compliance measurement
  • Device: Non-invasive ventilation (Respironics)
