Lung Ventilation Scan

  • Also Known As

    This test measures how well air can flow through the bronchi and bronchioles within your lungs. It uses a radioactive substance to trace the movement of air through the lungs. During the scan, a patient inhales a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen containing small amounts of radioactive xenon or technetium. The substance will then show up in the scanned image and gives information about how well your lungs are working.
