Structural and functional pulmonary magnetic resonance imaging

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The presence of air in the lungs makes magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) particularly challenging; hence, the development and clinical incorporation of pulmonary MRI has trailed its use in other body regions. The use of newer perfusion imaging techniques and development of hyperpolarized gas MRI techniques have made this an effective modality for studying pulmonary structure and function noninvasively and without ionizing radiation. The purpose of this article is to review the technical aspects of structural and functional pulmonary MRI and its potential use in clinical imaging.
