Xenon MRI in ILD (Lung Disease & Healthy Volunteers) - Clinical Trial

What is the Purpose of this Study?

We are doing this study to learn how to get the best quality images of lungs in an MRI scanner as people breathe in Xenon gas. We hope this imaging will show key differences between diseased and healthy lungs.

What is the Condition Being Studied?

Interstitial Lung Disease & Healthy Volunteers

Who Can Participate in the Study?

Adults ages 18+ who:

- Are diagnosed with an interstitial lung disease; OR

- Are in general good health and do not have lung disease (healthy, matching volunteers)
