Because of increasing demand, rapid development of in vitro and in vivo models to be used to study lung regeneration and lung repair has occurred during the last years. Even if imaging has always been an important tool in diagnosing disease and validating models, the current disease models, including three-dimensional (3D) lung models, put a higher demand on advanced imaging techniques. Moreover, choosing the most relevant technique for a specific question is not a trivial task, and the rapid development of new techniques has not made this task easier. Therefore the aim of this chapter is to provide an overview of different advanced imaging techniques that can be used to evaluate and validate 3D lung models, to provide a discussion on the current state of the art, and to list the pros and cons of the available techniques.
