This service is intended for doctors to aid in identification of lung diseases and is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. The generated report must be examined by a physician in conjunction with persisting symptoms, and other clinical/diagnostic information available about the patient. Accordingly, this report is not meant to be shared with the patient or any other entity.
