A high resolution, rapid scanning in one breath-hold and three-dimensional zero-echo time protocol for lung imaging was established in this study. It successfully captured rapid-decaying lung signal and eliminated the motion artifact and consequently exhibit high quality of pulmonary anatomy, including the tortuous vessels architecture and bronchial wall in exceptional clarity and detail. Additionally, it provides the volume estimation of pulmonary tissue and shows somewhat comparable with the calculation result from computed tomography.
