The second seminar of the UC Heart, Lung and Vascular Institute and Cardiovascular Center 2014-15 Seminar Series will be presented on Monday, October 20, from 12 pm – 1 pm in the Medical Sciences Building, 3rd Floor, Room 3351.  Lunch will be served at 11:45 am.

Jason C. Woods, Ph.D., Professor of Pediatrics and Director of the Center for Pulmonary Imaging Research at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, will present, New Technologies to Image the Pediatric Lung.  Pulmonary imaging in pediatric patients is challenging due to the small chest size and inability (at early age) to perform breathhold. There is also increasing concern about ionizing radiation in developing organs. This presentation will outline new techniques we have been developing for imaging pediatric patients, via hyperpolarized-gas and proton MRI during free breathing. These quantitative techniques represent a significant step forward in pulmonary imaging.
