Star VIBE (MRI) sequence in obtaining scan under free breathing can provide high-resolution imaging. Therefore, we assessed the accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for detecting pulmonary nodules by comparing the detection rate of high-resolution Star vibe sequence with the MSCT results. We concluded that pulmonary nodules with the maximum diameter more than 3mm can be detected by star-vibe (MRI) sequence with a satisfactory accuracy. Although pulmonary nodules with the max diameter less than 3mm had relatively low sensitivity, the accurate treatment decisions may also be made.
