The Australian Lung Health Initiative (ALHI) is a partnership of Australian companies, Universities, and Research Institutes with the purpose of integrating the revolutionary XV Technology™ into the development of the world’s first dedicated lung function scanners, with a vision towards zero dose.
ALHI’s goal is to deliver groundbreaking lung healthcare advancements that are safe, rapid, easy to use and to provide detailed functional analysis for patients of any age. This will fill the critical unmet need for accurate and sensitive lung health assessment tools for young children.
The project brings together world-leading Australian scientists, physicists, engineers, medical researchers, respiratory physiologists, data scientists and manufacturers whose vision is to deliver first-of-its-kind lung screening that will propel Australia to the forefront of lung science, and create a new, local hi-tech industry.
4DMedical (formerly 4Dx) is a medical technology company based in Melbourne, Australia. The FDA-approved XV Lung Ventilation Analysis Software platform is a world-first, cutting-edge analytical imaging technology; it images the lungs in real-time during a live breath, providing 4-dimensional quantitative measurements that identify regional ventilation deficiencies, at every point within the lung. 4DMedical’s technology provides higher sensitivity and greater pinpoint accuracy than any modality in medical history – all with an extremely low dose and no use of contrast agents.
