Abstract

Volume reduction surgery has recently been an important surgical procedure for patients with severe pulmonary emphysema. We compared the sagittal and coronal images taken by the HASTE sequence with those obtained by turbo FLASH during deep breathing and with CT images obtained under deep inspiration. Clear images were obtained from both sequences, without cardiac or respiratory motion artifacts. The emphysematous areas were demonstrated as low signal intensity areas, as in CT images. The ratio of signal intensity in the expiratory phase to that in the inspiratory phase was lower than that of volunteers in the HASTE sequence. The HASTE sequence provides useful information about respiratory movement as well as about changes in the pulmonary parenchyma when used for preoperative examination.
