With the use of positron emission tomography, alveolar ventilation (VA), lung density, and pulmonary blood volume (VB) were measured regionally in eight nonsmokers in the supine posture and one nonsmoker in the prone posture during quiet breathing in a transaxial thoracic section at midheart level. Regional values of alveolar volume (VA) and extravascular tissue volume (VEV) were derived from the inherent relationships between different compartments in the lung. Ratios proportional to gas… CONTINUE READING
