Functional pulmonary MRI using hyperpolarised 3He
Ball, Iain Keith (2011) Functional pulmonary MRI using hyperpolarised 3He. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The microstructure of the lung is complex, containing many branching airways and alveolar sacs for optimal gas exchange. Lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis (CF), asthma, and emphysema lead to a destruction of this microstructure. As such, there is a growing interest in the early identification and assessment of lung disease using non invasive imaging techniques.
