Real-time magnetic resonance (MR) navigator echo (NE) monitoring of the diaphragm is now possible. Using this technique, temporal changes in diaphragm position can be analyzed in a non-invasive fashion, without x-ray exposure. In this preliminary study, we have optimized three NE parameters (the NE column area, the NE repeat time, and the location of the NE… CONTINUE READING
