The Department of Physics invites you to attend a Zoom seminar presented by:
Research Chair, Thunder Bay Regional Health Research Institute &
Professor of Chemistry, Lakehead University
Hyperpolarized (HP) xenon-129 (129Xe) was co-invented by Dr. Mitchell Albert in the early 1990’s. Over the last 30 years, the field of HP 129Xe magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been under intensive development. This presentation highlights the history of HP 129Xe MRI development with a focus on the recent applications of HP 129Xe MRI for functional brain and lung imaging. The main applications of HP 129Xe brain imaging will be discussed, such as stroke imaging, Alzheimer’s disease detection, hemodynamic response detection, and functional brain imaging. The main applications of HP 129Xe lung disease imaging will also be discussed, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), and cystic fibrosis (CF).
