FRI parameters

FRI has the unique capability of producing highly clinical relevant patient specific biomarkers, presenting 3D visualization of the patient’s airway and lung geometry, regional airway resistance and aerosol deposition patterns.

The effectiveness of these biomarkers in facilitating correct diagnoses and monitoring patient outcomes has been validated in over 25 clinical trials, involving more than 10,000 scans, performed in collaboration with various academic and medical research centers. These trials confirmed the higher sensitivity of FRI, through its use of biomarkers, compared with existing standard diagnostic tests such as spirometry.
