In contrast to the common view that Gd-based contrast agents have only marginal/limited effect on balanced steady state free precession (bSSFP) from its $$$T_2/T_1$$$ signal properties, we will demonstrate that especially for lung imaging single-dose contrast agent administration increases the parenchymal signal nearly up two fold.
