Lung imaging in small animals is particular difficult due to small anatomy dimensions, high respiratory and heart rate and the very short T2* value in high magnetic fields. A 2D tiny golden angle UTE sequence was tested in free-breathing healthy mice to generate high quality lung images. The functional ventilation and proton density was evaluated.
