In vivo imaging of the airway wall in asthma: fibered confocal fluorescence microscopy in relation to histology and lung function
|Application:||Diagnosis of disease|
|Throughput:||Medium / Low (Lab scale)|
FCFM captures the elastic fibre pattern within the airway wall in humans in vivo. The association between post-bronchodilator FEV(1) %predicted and both histological and FCFM elastic fibre patterns points towards a structure-function relationship between extracellular matrix in the airway wall and lung function.
