Hyperpolarized (HP) gas MRI allows visualization and quantification of regional lung ventilation; however, there is limited clinical uptake due to the requirement for highly specialized equipment and exogenous contrast agents. Alternative, non-contrast, model-based proton ($^1$H)-MRI surrogates of ventilation, which correlate moderately with HP gas MRI, have been proposed. Recently, deep learning (DL)-based methods have been used for the synthesis of HP gas MRI from free-breathing $^1$H-MRI for a single 2D section. Here, we developed and evaluated a multi-channel 3D DL method that combines modeling and data-driven approaches to synthesize HP gas MRI ventilation scans from multi-inflation $^1$H-MRI.
