Drugs used to treat various diseases may induce lung injury known as drug induced interstitial lung disease (DIILD). Clinical and pre-clinical studies within the TRISTAN-consortium are aimed at finding translational Imaging Biomarkers (IB) that can indicate progression of DIILD at an early stage. In the present in vivo study, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was applied along with analyses of lavage and lung tissue.
