  • Recently, dynamic chest radiography using a flat panel detector (FPD) system with a large field of view was introduced for clinical use. This technique can provide sequential chest radiographs with high temporal resolution during respiration (17), and the namely dose is much lower than that of CT. Also, whereas CT and MRI are performed in the…[Read more]

  • Statistical AnalysisDescriptive statistics are expressed as mean ± standard deviation for continuous variables and as frequency and percentages for nominal variables. A paired t test was used to compare the excursion and peak motion speed between the right diaphragm and the left diaphragm. The associations between the excursions of the diaphragms…[Read more]

  • DiscussionOur study determined the average excursion of the diaphragms during tidal breathing in a standing position in a health screening center cohort using dynamic chest radiography (“dynamic X-ray phrenicography”). These findings are important because they provide reference values of diaphragmatic motion during tidal breathing useful for the…[Read more]

    Our study showed that the excursion and peak motion speed of the left eif2a are significantly greater and faster than those of the right. With regard to the excursion, the results of our study are consistent with those of previous reports using fluoroscopy in a standing position 2 ;  3. However, in the previous studies evaluating diaphragmatic…[Read more]

    Image AnalysisThe diaphragmatic motions on sequential chest radiographs (dynamic image data) during tidal breathing were analyzed using prototype software (Konica Minolta, Inc.) installed in an independent workstation (Operating system: Windows 7 Pro SP1; Microsoft, Redmond WA; CPU: Intel Core i5-5200U, 2.20 GHz; memory 16 GB). The edges of the…[Read more]

     A representative video of sequential chest radiographs obtained by chest dynamic radiography for the motion of the diaphragms (“dynamic X-ray phrenicography”). A board-certified radiologist placed a point of interest (red point) on the highest point of each caspase pathway on the radiograph at the resting end-expiratory position. These points…[Read more]

    ConclusionsThe time-resolved quantitative analysis of the diaphragms with dynamic X-ray phrenicography is feasible. The average excursions of the diaphragms are 11.0 mm (right) and 14.9 mm (left) during tidal breathing in a standing position in our health screening center cohort. The diaphragmatic motion of the left is significantly larger and…[Read more]
