Dynamic digital radiography technology may help radiologists better assess undifferentiated dyspnea, according to researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “Dyspnea is a common complaint involving a complex interaction of pathological processes, and with different underlying causes that can make it difficult to pinpoint the patient’s condition,” said Mary O’Sullivan, MD, assistant professor of medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She added, “With improved clarity and less radiation than fluoroscopy or CT, and a more integrated assessment than ultrasound can provide, dynamic X-ray fosters a contextual understanding of not only dyspnea but also other pathophysiologic abnormalities of the entire chest that might contribute to it.”
