Low-field (.55T) non-contrast MRI was performed in 15 post-Covid patients for combined cardiac and pulmonary evaluation, allowing for derivation of cardiac function in terms of left ventricular ejection fraction, as well as assessment for presence of persisting pulmonary parenchymal abnormalities. As the number of post-Covid patients increases, a radiation and contrast-free mode of cardiopulmonary imaging is of increasing relevance; low-field MRI in particular is a promising tool for high-performance lung imaging.
