Article
Whether prone positioning (PP) modulates acute lung inflammation by the modulation of biomechanical forces of ventilator-induced lung injuries (VILI) remains unclear. We aimed to demonstrate that PP decreases acute lung inflammation in animals with experimental ARDS. Animals were under general anesthesia and protective ventilation (tidal volume 6 m...

Background PEEP selection in severe COVID-19 patients under extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is challenging as no study has assessed the alveolar recruitability in this setting. The aim of the study was to compare lung recruitability and the impact of PEEP on lung aeration in moderate and severe ARDS patients with or without ECMO, using c...

Article
Full-text available
CT registration-derived indices provide data on regional lung functional changes in COPD. However, because unlike spirometry which involves dynamic maximal breathing maneuvers, CT-based functional parameters are assessed between two static breath-holds, it is not clear how regional and global lung function parameters relate to each other. We assess...

Background Personalizing mechanical ventilation requires the development of reliable bedside monitoring techniques. The multiple-breaths nitrogen washin–washout (MBNW) technique is currently available to measure end-expiratory lung volume (EELV MBNW ), but the precision of the technique may be poor, with percentage errors ranging from 28 to 57%. Th...
Article
Purpose: Motion-mask segmentation from thoracic CT images is the process of extracting the region that encompasses lungs and viscera, where large displacements occur during breathing. It has been shown to help image registration between different respiratory phases. This registration step is, for example, useful for radiotherapy planning or calcul...
Article
Assessing arterial-wall motion and deformations may reveal pathologic alterations in biomechanical properties of the parietal tissues and, thus, contribute to the detection of vascular disease onset. Ultrasound image sequences allow the observation of this motion and many methods have been developed to estimate temporal changes in artery diameter a...
Chapter
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a critical impairment of the lung function, which occurs – among others – in severe cases of patients with Covid-19. Its therapeutic management is based on mechanical ventilation, but this may aggravate the patient’s condition if the settings are not adapted to the actual lung state. Computed tomography...

Materials and methods The study is a single-center prospective observational study performed on adults with ARDS onset ≤72 h and a PaO2/FiO2 ≤ 200 mmHg. CT scans were acquired...
Article
Motion extracted from the carotid artery wall provides unique information for vascular health evaluation. Carotid artery longitudinal wall motion corresponds to the multiphasic arterial wall excursion in the direction parallel to blood flow during the cardiac cycle. While this motion phenomenon has been well characterized, there is a general lack o...

Carotid longitudinal kinetics (LOKI) has proven to be modified by arteriosclerosis. Although most teams use only LOKI amplitude to distinguish at-risk patients from healthy controls, the whole motion may be useful to detect pathological behaviors. In this study typical motion patterns were isolated and their association with cardiovascular risk was...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The carotid-artery intima-media thickness (IMT) is strongly correlated with cardio-vascular disease, but tends to overestimate the risk. Recently a promising predictor has been discovered: the IMT temporal variation during the cardiac cycle, which reflects the arterial stiffness and may be more sensitive than classical risk markers. Few teams have...

A cylindrical geometric model, the right generalized cylinder (RGC) model, is presented in this chapter. This model follows the definition given by Binford in his taxonomy. The model can define complex (as well as simple) cylinders with few parameters, and it could be used to construct digital phantoms, simulate vascular shapes, create 3D models to...
