In this study we explore the use of continuous 2D spiral k-space sampling to dynamically image the uptake of inhaled hyperpolarized 129Xe dissolved in human brain tissue. The sliding window reconstruction enables the monitoring of xenon uptake dynamics in the gray matter at high temporal resolution. Dynamic 129Xe brain MRI may be useful in pathologies related to cerebral perfusion and may provide insight in to blood brain barrier permeability.
