The primary objective of this study is to test 3D UTE Cones clinically for MR lung imaging. The purpose of the investigation is twofold. Primary goal is to test whether or not Cones can be used for high resolution lung anatomical imaging that might be useful for imaging vessels or pulmonary nodules. We test also the possibility for detecting and visualising the lung density that can also be used for imaging parenchyma diseases and more importantly can lead to more accurate extraction of lung attenuation maps for PET/MR attenuation correction.
