Significant image signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is compromised by this contrast-producing process. In this report, a multiple echo frequency-domain image contrast (MEFIC) method is presented. During the conventional TE period, a multiple echo train modulated by T2 or T decay is acquired. A third Fourier transform along the echo direction produces an image set with pixel signal intensity modulated by the spectrum of the decay curve.
In this report, a multiple echo frequency-domain image contrast (MEFIC) method is presented. During the conventional TE period, a multiple echo train modulated by T-2 or T-2* decay is acquired, A third Fourier transform along the echo direction produces an image set with pixel signal intensity modulated by the spectrum of the decay curve. This method simultaneously enhances image contrast with a large increase in SNR, Experimental studies of cerebral vasogenic edema in immature rats and functional MR imaging studies of the human motor cortex have demonstrated that the MEFIC method produces superior image quality over conventional methods for generating T-2- and T-2*-weighted images.
