Understanding the characteristic of airflow, and the amount of particle deposition in different sections of respiratory system provides information for treatment procedures and processes. Results of preliminary numerical investigations for development of a system of image transfer and simulation to identify patient specific respiratory problem are presented. The system is a non-intrusive approach for evaluation of central airway diseases which could also be used for development of methods for reviving and recovery of damaged lung, especially at the onset of respiratory problems.
