The server-side (real time) software developed for ESI calculation is now validated.
The ESI methodology was implemented to provide a simple and effective tool for the assessment of emphysema severity in smokers, ex-smokers patients with COPD.
The web-based application available here at www.emphysema.app was used to calculate the ESI (Emphysema Severity Index) in a population of 5930 subjects (smokers, ex-smokers, patients with COPD).
The ESI values were compared with the CT-based metrics obtained by advanced software (CT images analysis).
The results are now published in Respiratory Research:
Updated version of the calculator: ESI index for the assessment of emphysema
New version 1.0.3 is released online.
Bug fixes, more data to input for complete reports, faster calculation process.
