Lung MRI can be applied to imaging and characterize the abnormalities and lesions in patients with history of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). By comparing with the images obtained from the routine clinical CT from the same patients, this work shows that MRI is comparable to CT as a non-radiation alternative for lung imaging with good diagnostic image quality. In addition, MRI can provide additional information on lung soft tissue properties not available from CT.
