Respiratory Biofeedback

The PI of this project was: Scott K Nagle, MD, PhD

This project was funded by: Radiology RD

The term of this project was: April 2018 to December 2018

The number of subjects scanned during this project was: 12

MRI of the upper abdomen and chest can be greatly impacted by respiratory motion. We are comparing the use of audio coaching and a respiratory biofeedback game to create more repeatable breathing at a certain respiratory rate and whether either approach will lead to better image quality on lung MRI. The respiratory biofeedback game collects data from the respiratory bellows and the subject will have to avoid obstacles by breathing around them.
