Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Lung perfusion is one of the key components of oxygenation. It is hampered in pulmonary arterial diseases and secondary due to parenchymal diseases.
METHODS: Assessment is frequently required during the workup of a patient for either of these disease categories.
RESULTS: This review provides insight into imaging techniques, qualitative and quantitative evaluation, and focuses on clinical application of MR perfusion.
CONCLUSION: The two major techniques, non-contrast-enhanced (arterial spin labeling) and contrast-enhanced perfusion techniques, are discussed.
