Deep Breeze launches radiation-free pulmonary imaging system in US

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Deep Breeze has launched its lung imaging system, VRIxp, in the US. The noninvasive radiation-free device employs vibration response imaging (VRI) technology, which uses lung sounds to create images. It records the sounds of the patient's breath, using sensors applied to the back, and an algorithm converts these data into images. It is designed for patients who arrive at the emergency department with dyspnoea, and can help diagnose several lung conditions including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma, as well as congestive heart failure. The FDA granted 510(k) clearance for the device in 2007 (www.clinica.co.uk, 24 August 2007), and Or-Akiva, Israel-based Deep Breeze CE marked it for sale in Europe in 2005 (www.clinica.co.uk, 7 October 2005).
