In this webinar, Prof. Jim Wild, head of POLARIS (Pulmonary, Lung and Respiratory Imaging Sheffield) at the University of Sheffield will cover all aspects of methodology for hyperpolarized 129Xe MRI in humans including, polarizer physics, RF coils, pulse sequence design, and functional imaging methods to study microstructure, gas exchange, air flow. It will also shed light on regulatory aspects as well as giving an overview of clinical applications in the lungs and other organs.
In this webinar, Wild will share his extensive knowledge on hyperpolarization lung imaging in humans and share insight into the novel pulmonary therapies using hyperpolarized gas and proton lung MRI as markers that his group is evaluating in collaboration with pharmaceutical companies.
Researchers focusing on pulmonary treatments will find this webinar particularly beneficial. This webinar is additionally valuable to MRI scientists interested in hyperpolarization and all researchers desiring to gain more insight into the process of translation of fundamental research to the clinic.
