Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is a noninvasive, non-ionizing functional imaging technique that can be performed as needed with no harmful side effects. The goal of this research is to determine whether electrical impedance tomography can provide a means to obtain quantitative and regional information about the extent and nature of bronchial obstruction in patients with cystic fibrosis.
