Lung cancer is currently the first major cancer that causes the human death. A lung, containing many alveolus, has a very low proton density, so it can not be imaged using the traditional proton MRI. CT and X-ray can be used to image the lungs, however, these techniques are radioactive and can only obtain the structure information of the lungs.
