4D Imaging of Breathing Lungs A new 4D dynamic functional lung imaging method developed by engineers at Monash University will allow health professionals a chance to study breathing lungs in unprecedented detail. The device uses high-speed video captured by a very bright, high quality X-ray, resulting in a detailed map of lung function. A new lung imaging method has the potential to revolutionize the study of lungs in both normal and diseased states. Researchers from Monash University have developed a 4D dynamic functional lung imaging method, which allows them to study breathing lungs in unprecedented detail. The method, developed by Faculty of Engineering PhD student Stephen Dubsky, provides measurements of motion, expansion and flow at every point within the lung, during the entire breathing cycle.
3D Human Anatomy Brain & Nervous System Respiratory System Reproductive & Urinary Cooking-Oil-Comparison-Chart You already know that Extra Virgin Olive Oil is good for you. But what do you choose when it’s time to branch out and try something new? There are a lot of cooking oils out there, and many have misleading health claims on the label. It can be a bit overwhelming when you walk down the oil aisle in the store. Some oils are very healthful, others not so much — and for different reasons.

A new technique developed by scientists at the University of Liverpool may help medical experts develop ways to reduce the risk of fibrillation by showing them a 3-D image of the heart and the fibers that control heart rhythm. The new 3-D images could further understanding of how the body’s heartbeat can be disturbed, which may help medics develop ways to reduce the risk of fibrillation – a condition in which heart muscle contracts chaotically and fails to pump blood rhythmically around the body. The heart needs to pump blood in a regular rhythm to maintain a steady circulation of blood to all parts of the body. It does this through the coordinated action of the muscle tissue, that pumps the blood, and the conducting tissue, which is necessary to distribute an electrical wave to trigger every heartbeat.
