MR Imaging of Lungs and Airways in Children:: Past and Present

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

MRI has historically been underused to evaluate the lungs and airways in children because of challenging technical factors leading to suboptimal image quality. Advances over the past several years have made MR imaging a feasible option to evaluate various disorders of the chest in pediatric patients. This review article discusses up-to-date techniques and protocols for MR imaging of the lungs and airways in children. MR imaging findings in commonly encountered disorders of the lungs and airways are also reviewed.
