My cousin suffers from lung condition called emphysema. I did some reading about it and I got confused when I read that they used helium to study this condition….I really don’t understand why and how, but I am interested. Does anyone know? I appreciate any information. Thank you

I read also about the research that has been performed on some patients with emphysema. The purpose was to quantitatively evaluate hyperpolarized helium 3 diffusion magnetic resonance (MR) images of the lung in patients with emphysema and to determine whether apparent diffusion coefficients measured with MR imaging correlate with spirometric indexes. I am not doctor or anything like that so I can’t explain you better, but this was the point or it I guess.
