A multisection, two-dimensional, Fourier transform, double-gradient-echo magnetic resonance imaging sequence with partial flip-angle excitation and section doubling by radiofrequency encoding approximately doubles the signal-to-noise ratio obtainable from a conventional spin-echo sequence at low field strength, while maintaining essentially equivalent(More)
Three-dimensional Fourier transform (3-DFT) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) offers advantages in terms of signal-to-noise (S/N) per unit of time for the case where a large number of slices is desired. This advantage is enhanced when the relaxation time, T(1 ), is short. Because time limitations in 3-DFT imaging force the use of short time intervals, TR,(More)
