After all, the exposure to radiation caused by one CT examination corresponds to approximately the effective dose of 200 chest radiographs. What is MRI's potential in the lung today? In diseases with alveolar pathology, cardiac- and respiratory-triggered MRI examinations are roughly equivalent to CT… CONTINUE READING
