PURPOSE Oxygen-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR)-ventilation imaging of the lung is based on the inhalation of a high concentration of oxygen (hyperoxia). However, the effect of hyperoxia on the pulmonary circulation is not yet fully understood. In this study the impact of hyperoxia on the pulmonary circulation was evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten healthy volunteers were examined in a 1.5 T MRI system with contrast-enhanced perfusion MRI (saturation recovery 2D turboFLASH) of the lung and… CONTINUE READING
