A portable, low field, MR Device is being designed for
use in the ICU. It was tested on healthy subjects and
used to measure lung density changes during a 3.5 minute
breathing protocol. A regional stress index, i.e.
regional lung density vs. lung volume was measured.
Gravitational differences were also observed.
