Helium3 polarization using spin exchange technique: application to simultaneous pulmonary ventilation/perfusion imaging in small animals.

Abstract

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To develop a simple and robust helium3 polarization system dedicated to small animal imaging. To demonstrate the potential of helium3 imaging for pulmonary ventilation and perfusion studies. METHODS A home-built polarization system based on spin-exchange technique was used. This system was applied for magnetic resonance imaging… (More)
