Recently, there has been an explosion of interest in imaging physiological processes in the lung in real time, and several notable advances have been made, which have been facilitated by new methodological approaches, novel microscopic and radiological imaging technologies, as well as the development of genetically modified animal models that facilitate imaging approaches. The pressing need for further advances in the development or refinement of experimental approaches for the real-time assessment of lung structure and function, together with an explosion of interest in this area of pre-clinical and clinical pulmonary research, has prompted this Special Call for Papers on "Real-time Visualization of Lung Function: from Micro to Macro" from the American Journal of Physiology - Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology.
