Nelson, Ph.D., from the University of Washington for his outstanding study and contributions to the field of pharmaceutical sciences. Nelson is normally professor and dean emeritus at the UW School of Pharmacy. He will receive the prestigious Volwiler Research Accomplishment Award on July 12 during the Examining Excellence Awards Plenary at the 2011 AACP Annual Interacting with and Seminars in San Antonio, Texas. I feel very honored and blessed to become a recipient of this award, said Nelson.Definition of Emphysema Heterogeneity and Lung-Segment Targeting by HRCT We used a semiautomated, computer-based quantitative analysis of HRCT scans to target the endobronchial-valve treatment .21 This %age was changed into a Likert level then, with a rating of 1 1 for 1 to 25 percent, 2 for 26 to 50 percent, 3 for 51 to 75 percent, and 4 for 76 to 100 percent. A 1-device difference between treated and untreated lobes was necessary for inclusion in the analyses. We targeted the lobe with the highest %age of emphysema and the best degree of heterogeneity. Fissure integrity was thought as the completeness of the fissure on at least one axis , as classified by the consensus of two independent visitors at the HRCT core laboratory. Follow-up and Procedure A flexible bronchoscope with or without rigid bronchoscopy was used for valve implantation.
