3 Questions

Which of the following statements about T1 relaxation is true?

T1 time is dependent on specific tissue, temperature, and the presence of paramagnetic ions/molecules like Gd

Which MRI acquisition method is the fastest but has limited spatial resolution?

Echo planar imaging

What determines the number of echoes received during the TR time in fast spin echo sequences?

The Turbo Factor or Echo Train Length (ETL

Study Notes

  1. The liver stores 70% of total body iron and has a short T2* due to local B0 field inhomogeneity.
  2. T1 relaxation is accelerated when the Lamor frequency matches the tumbling frequency of molecules.
  3. Small molecules like water and CSF have long T1 values, while medium-sized molecules like lipids have relatively short T1 values.
  4. Large macromolecules have short T2 values, while smaller molecules have longer T2 values.
  5. T2 time is dependent on specific tissue, temperature, and the presence of paramagnetic ions/molecules like Gd.
  6. Spin-echo sequences result in lower intensity for long T1 and short T2, and higher intensity for short T1 and long T2.
  7. Echo planar imaging is the fastest MRI acquisition method, but has limited spatial resolution.
  8. Fast spin echo sequences use a spin echo train to fill k-space faster and reduce slice acquisition time.
  9. The Turbo Factor or Echo Train Length (ETL) determines the number of echoes received during the TR time in fast spin echo sequences.
  10. It is more common to acquire a smaller number of echoes and acquire the image in a small number of shots in fast spin echo sequences.
