FRI in critical care: challenges and opportunities
Functional Respiratory Imaging (FRI) did not have a place in critical care before the COVID-19 pandemic, but as healthcare systems were overloaded with an unprecedented number of patients, new technologies and solutions became more desirable.

Analyses with FRI could help explain why oxygenation is more difficult in some of the individuals with ARDS.
