Abstract:

The report gives a brief summary of individual studies and activities performed during the past year. Progress accomplished centered primarily on application of recently developed techniques to the study of the spatial distribution of strains and ventilation within the lung parenchyma. It is clear that the parenchymal marker and three-dimensional reconstruction techniques described will add significant new information to understanding of dynamic regional stress-strain relationships throughout the lung and will provide the methodology to study the effects on regional lung function of alterations in these parameters induced by changes in the gravitational-inertial force environment.
