Quote:
Scientists have designed a 3D computer simulation which could aid the treatment of collapsed lungs.

The programme gives doctors vital information about how much pressure is needed to reopen the airways without damaging the tissue.

It could benefit premature babies and adults who suffer from a condition called respiratory distress syndrome.
