Lung water measurement by nuclear magnetic resonance: correlation with morphometry.


Estimates of lung water content obtained from nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and morphometric and gravimetric measurements were compared in normal and experimentally injured rats. Average lung water density (rho H2O) was measured by an NMR technique in excised unperfused rat lungs (20 normal lungs and 12 lungs with oleic acid-induced edema) at 0 (full… (More)
