Optimized single-slab three-dimensional spin-echo MR imaging of the brain

Radiology. 2000 Sep;216(3):891-9. doi: 10.1148/radiology.216.3.r00au46891.


The development and optimization of spin-echo-based, single-slab, three-dimensional techniques for magnetic resonance imaging of the whole brain are described. T1-weighted and T2-weighted image sets with a volume resolution of 1 mm(3) and fluid-attenuated inversion-recovery image sets with a volume resolution of 3 mm(3) were obtained in acquisition times of less than 10 minutes per image set.
