Hyperpolarized Xenon Functional Lung Imaging in COPD Patients Undergoing Targeted Lung Denervation

view all Clinical Trials


Targeted Lung Denervation (TLD) Therapy is intended to improve airway smooth muscle relaxation from the site of treatment all the way to the lung periphery, which may be beneficial in the treatment of patients with COPD. To better understand the physiological effects of this therapy, the investigators intend to conduct a functional magnetic resonance imaging study of the lung with HP 129Xe study in COPD patients undergoing this procedure. HP 129Xe provides valuable regional information about ventilation and gas exchange in both healthy and diseased lung.
