In this work, the feasibility of contrast-media-free pulmonary Fourier decomposition (FD) MRI is assessed in patients with primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD). An automatic evaluation of regional functional defects on fractional ventilation and perfusion FD maps has been developed. Furthermore, the lung function evaluated using FD MRI is compared to the parameters obtained using multiple breath washout technique and spirometry. Statistical analysis was used to find significant correlations between FD MRI and lung function techniques.
