Multi-volumetric breath-hold imaging was recently proposed for respiratory $$$\alpha$$$-mapping, a novel quantitative measure of pulmonary ventilation. In this work, we evaluate the feasibility to derive 3D pulmonary functional maps from morphological lung data which are reconstructed from a time-series of multi-slice 2D ultra-fast SSFP scans acquired in free-breathing (4D-MRI).
