syngo DE Lung PBV

syngo DE Lung PBV (Perfused blood volume) enables a fast evaluation of lung perfusion defects without use of an additional non-contrast scan. It directly visualizes the local iodine concentration in the lung parenchyma, which is a measure of the local blood volume, thus enabling a display of the area of possibly affected tissue.

Eigenschaften & Vorteile

Clinical Applications
Evaluation of obstructive or restrictive lung disease as well as assessment of perfusion deficit e.g. from pulmonary emboli.


  • Color codes the iodine distribution in the lung parenchyma, and thus visualizes perfusion defects caused by small emboli as areas with reduced color density
  • Detecting and assessing the functional relevance of pulmonary embolism without additional dose, contrast application, or examination time
