Abstract

The assessment of regional ventilation in human lungs is important for the diagnosis and evaluation of a variety of pulmonary disorders, including pulmonary emphysema, diffuse lung disease (e.g., sarcoidosis, and pulmonary fibrosis), lung cancer, and pulmonary embolism. This article introduces new MR imaging techniques of pulmonary ventilation and perfusion that will provide a framework for assessing regional pulmonary functions of the lung.
