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.
Breath-hold short-TE VIBE and Dixon VIBE sequences have better
performance in lesion detection than radial VIBE.
