Medical Need

Pulmonary functional imaging with MagniXene® can provide a foundation for a new era of personalized care in respiratory diseases. A new category of minimally-invasive procedures and conformal therapies will be able to benefit from image guidance from 3D maps of lung functional microstructure. While we highlight COPD, asthma, and cancer below, we also anticipate that MagniXene® may play many roles in patient care: evaluating antibiotic wash-out treatment in children with cystic fibrosis exacerbations, evaluating impairment of oxygen uptake due to pulmonary emboli pre- and post-endarterectomy, and providing early signs of bronchiolitis obliterans in lung transplant tissue rejections.
