MR imaging of the lung is a challenge due to the low proton density in lung parenchyma and the very short relaxation times. To overcome low signal and SNR problems UTE-sequences have successfully been applied to lung imaging. Here, the benefit of a 2D UTE-acquisition for the determination of ventilation and perfusion, as determined by SENCEFUL-MRI, is evaluated. It is shown that SENCEFUL-MRI clearly benefits from the use of a UTE-sequence.
