Hyperpolarized Xenon-129 MRI ventilation and gas exchange imaging and computational modelling provide a way to quantitatively assess gas ventilation and gas exchange parameters. This new imaging and modelling technique can be used to assess pulmonary diseases including COPD and emphysema and promises to be sensitive to variation in healthy subjects due to age, and/or early phases of pulmonary gas exchange impairment.
