  Hubei Daily News (Journalist Xinlong Li), yesterday , the news from national natural science foundation of China, the project "the development of the MRI system using for study the Major diseases in human lung" that applied by WIPM through 8 turns of review, become the major instrument development special fund project. It  is one of the eighteen such project in the country , and is also the only one project that our province leads.

     The Major diseases in human lung such as COPD\ Emphysema\asthma are the third-largest disease causing death. Lung cancer is the first mortality of malignant tumor in China. The occurrence and development of lung disease, is usually the function injury first, and then evolved into the structural changes. The present Medical imaging technology, such as chest X-ray, CT, proton MRI, that can obtain the Lung structure information, cannot get the function information, it Hinder the further research on major diseases of lung.

     This approved project ,aims at the Frontiers of biomedical research .combine with laser polarized technology\ Advanced magnetic resonance techniques\ high performance image Processing technology and so on, Cross the establishment and development of "super sensitive magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy". The completion of the project and the development of instrument is successful, can promote the pulmonary imaging study to function from structure, which can not only on imaging lung structure,  can also  imaging the main function of pulmonary gas-gas exchange and gas-gas in blood exchange  with high sensitivity.
