Ventilation/perfusion imaging of the lung using ultra-short echo time (UTE) MRI in an animal model of pulmonary embolism.

Abstract

PURPOSE To test the feasibility of ultra-short echo time (UTE) MRI for assessment of regional pulmonary ventilation/perfusion in a standard 3 Tesla clinical MRI system. MATERIALS AND METHODS MRI of the lungs was conducted with an optimized three-dimensional UTE sequence in normal rats and in a rat model of pulmonary embolism (PE) induced by a blood clot… (More)
