MR imaging is limited by poor evaluation of lung parenchyma due to rapid single decay, low tissue portion density and substantial respiratory motion. In this study, we evaluate three different approaches of VIBE sequences in pulmonary lesions detection, which including a short-TE breath-hold VIBE, DIXON VIBE and a free-breathing Radial VIBE. We found Breath-hold short-TE VIBE and Dixon VIBE sequences have better performance in lesion detection than radial VIBE.
