Quantification of regional lung ventilation is of high relevance for lung diseases like chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) or asthma. Regional ventilation of the lungs in COPD patients was assessed using ventilation-weighted Fourier decomposition-MRI and validated with real-time dynamic fluorinated MRI and lung function test. Strong correlations were found comparing both techniques with each other and with lung function testing which is used for COPD classification.
