Serial lung magnetic resonance imaging to monitor disease progression in a child with a diffuse alveolar hemorrhage syndrome

J Clin Med Res. 2015 Apr;7(4):267-9. doi: 10.14740/jocmr1962w. Epub 2015 Feb 9.


Serial lung magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed in a child with diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH). To minimize radiation exposure with conventional serial chest computerized tomography (CT), serial MRIs of the lungs were used. This effectively monitored her disease process as well as detected acute hemorrhage after 5 years remission.
