This abstract presents an overview of human pulmonary gas-state imaging results with hyperpolarized 129Xe from over 120 breath-hold experiments on 10 different human subjects at 0.2T. Results include 2D multi-slice ventilation and ADC images as well as dynamic (movies) of inhalation and exhalation.
