Radiation-free MRI with MultiVane motion correction technique improved the lung MR imaging quality with satisfactory quality compared to routine T2 weighted imaging or CT imaging. In this study, MultiVane lung MRI protocol provided diagnostic performance acceptable in detection of several common lung abnormalities with a good agreement to the findings obtained in routine clinical CT examinations, especially to identify caseation or liquefactive necrosis. However, MRI is less desirable to detect the nodules with calcification. The current lung MRI with non-radiation is feasible. It offers a promising alternative to the clinical standard CT in diagnosis and characterization of pulmonary diseases.
