Clinical consistency study for a Portable Pulmonary Injury Diagnostic Device (PPIDD)
Institute for Diagnostic Imaging Research (IDIR) at the University of Windsor
Established in 2008, the Institute for Diagnostic Imaging Research (IDIR) at the University of Windsor is a multi-disciplinary, collaborative research and innovation centre whose primary focus is on the development and commercialization of innovative diagnostic imaging technologies and products. They have developed a portable tool for diagnosis of fluid and air accumulation in the pleural and abdominal cavities. The goal of is to eliminate the subjective factor from percussion diagnostics, thereby allowing accurate diagnosis to be made by nonprofessionals. IDIR seeks to partner with Under PI Celina Da Silva (School of Nursing, FT) to conduct a Consistency Study to make PPIDD “clinical trial ready”. The main objective is to determine whether PPIDD is truly objective and performs consistently in the hands of different users (nurses, paramedics, medical residents), regardless of the user’s level of training and familiarity with the device. The information will be used to improve the signal processing software and provide key insights for designing the clinical study protocol.
