Clinical Lung Imaging

MRI of the lung can be applied in a variety of clinical scenarios. It is a feasible alternative to CT– as it avoids unnecessary radiation in young patients and provides additional physiological information such as perfusion or respiratory dynamics. Diffusion-weighted imaging can even add biological information about cell density.
In this report, Professor Biederer (University Hospital Kiel, Germany) gives a detailed review on lung imaging protocols and an insight into typical applications for lung MRI.
