Structure and Function MRI of Asthma

The investigators will apply 129Xenon and/or 3He image acquisition and analysis methods in 120 asthma patient volunteers in order to characterize and probe the relationship between lung structure and function using imaging.

Hyperpolarized Noble Gas MRI

Hyperpolarized Helium-3 and/or Xenon-129. Noble gas magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has recently emerged as another research approach for the non-invasive measurement of lung structure and function, including conduction of gas through airways and into airspaces. Noble gas MRI provides a complimentary and alternative method for evaluating lung disease and may be superior to CT because it allows simultaneous visualization of both airway and airspace structure and function.
