Using a multinuclear 0.5T Paramed Medical Systems MROpen Upright MRI scanner, 129Xe images have been acquired within the duration of a breath hold. An active SAR monitoring system has been implemented to allow for the safe collection of data within SAR limits of chest imaging. There is the intention of applying compressed sensing to the current 129Xe sequence. The upright and open design of the scanner makes imaging more comfortable for patients and allows for imaging in later stages of respiratory diseases.
