Dr. Mitchell S. Albert’s laboratory focuses on using hyperpolarized (HP) noble gas MRI, an innovative technology that provides spectacularly detailed images of structures and processes within the body. HP gas MRI has the potential to allow medical researchers and health care providers to significantly improve diagnosis and treatment of a variety of diseases, including lung diseases, stroke, and cancer. This laboratory uses HP noble gas MRI to investigate gas ventilation within the lungs, gas exchange in the alveoli of the lungs, and moment-to-moment functional activity in the brain.
