Considerable progress has been made in the application of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging and nonimaging techniques to the quantitative assessment of pulmonary edema. NMR measurements offer the advantages of being noninvasive, relatively rapid, and easily repeatable. In addition, NMR imaging is suitable for the determination of lung water distribution. Studies of various animal models have shown that NMR techniques can adequately detect and quantify relative changes in lung water content and distribution in various types of experimental lung injury. Preliminary observations in humans suggest that NMR measurement of relative lung water changes in clinical pulmonary edema should be feasible. Although the application of NMR to the assessment of pulmonary edema appears to be very promising, it also poses significant problems that must be solved before it can be established as a standard experimental and clinical method.
