Table 3 The mean (±SD) variability in lung deposition measured as the standard deviation in counts of radioactivity per unit lung volume in sitting and side lying for the three participant groups, with representative scans of the group participants in sitting

From: Side lying during nebulisation can significantly improve apical deposition in healthy adults and adults with mild cystic fibrosis lung disease: a randomised crossover trial

SD counts per voxel Healthy Mild CF Advanced CF
Sitting 1294 ± 920 1920 ± 851 2229 ± 774
Side lying 1250 ± 981 1980 ± 370 1892 ± 486
