Chest computed tomography (CT) has played significant role in assessing the pulmonary findings of COVID-19. However, MRI, a radiation-free imaging technique has hardly been applied for assessing the pulmonary abnormalities of patients with COVID-19. Ultra shot echo time MRI (UTE-MR) is broadly regarded as a valuable tool for pulmonary imaging. This research, hence, aims to evaluate the COVID-19 with UTE-MR. The results indicated that there was no significant difference of image quality between the UTE-MR and CT for identifying the representative abnormalities. Besides, the intermethod agreement of UTE-MR and CT for assessing the pulmonary abnormalities were all determined excellent.
