4DMedical, a Melbourne-based respiratory imaging technology firm, has partnered with the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center to conduct the study of the Veteran Affairs functional lung imaging.

Using 4DMedical's XV Technology, the study aims to enhance treatment for veterans with chronic respiratory conditions.

The study will enrol 40 patients and analyse regional ventilation and its correlation with the quality of life. This could potentially lead to improved treatment approaches and reduced rehospitalisation.

CEO Andreas Fouras expressed confidence in the partnership's potential for a large-scale rollout within the Veteran Affairs.
