PURPOSE beyond the pure morphological visual representation, MR imaging offers the possibility to quantify parameters in the healthy, as well as, in pathologic lung parenchyma. Gas exchange is the primary function of the lung and the transport of oxygen plays a key role in pulmonary physiology and pathophysiology. The purpose of this review is to present a(More)
The T(1) values of lung parenchyma of 25 patients with fibrosis and emphysema were measured in the entire lung, and the effect of inspiration and expiration was investigated. T(1) map acquisition was based on a snapshot-fast low-angle shot (FLASH) sequence. Lung function and blood gas tests were measured. The study documents reverse respiratory phase(More)
AIMS The local pulmonary inflammatory response has a different temporal and qualitative profile compared with the systemic inflammatory response. Although glucocorticoids substantially downregulate the systemic release of acute-phase mediators, it is not clear whether they have comparable inhibitory effects in the human lung compartment. Therefore, we(More)
