PURPOSE To image respiratory dynamics and three-dimensional (3D) ventilation during inhalation, breath-hold, and exhalation for evaluation of obstructive lung disease using a single dose of hyperpolarized (HP) He-3 during MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS A single 2D-3D projections inside Z encoding (PRIZE)-2D acquisition was performed that consisted of a rapid 2D radial acquisition phase during inhalation of the HP He-3, a 3D acquisition phase during a breath-hold interval, and finally the same 2D… CONTINUE READING
