Total lung capacity (TLC) assessment outside of a research laboratory is challenging. We describe a novel method for measuring TLC that is both simple and based only on portable equipment, and report preliminary data on healthy subjects.We developed an open circuit system to administer a known amount of oxygen to a subject in a single maximal inspiratory maneuver.

Background: MR fingerprinting (MRF) is a versatile method for rapid multi-parametric quantification. The application of MRF for lower MRI field could enable multi-contrast imaging and improve exam efficiency on these systems. The purpose of this work is to demonstrate the feasibility of 3D whole-brain T1 and T2 mapping using MR fingerprinting on a contemporary 0. Read More

Background: Migration, production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), release of myeloperoxidase (MPO), and NETosis are functional immunological reactions of elementary importance for polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN). Unregulated inflammatory response of PMN within tissues plays a key role in the pathophysiology of several diseases. However, little is known about the behavior of PMN after migration through blood vessel walls. Read More
