Research using lung function testing and lung scintigraphy in different patient groups, e.g. lung transplantation and endobronchial stenting for emphysema, are undertaken.

The value of combined use of SPECT/CT for diagnosing pulmonary embolism has recently been evaluated. The value of biomarkers in combination with imaging is also studied. Research is also being conducted into mucociliary clearance of the nose and lungs.​
