PURPOSE We demonstrate an improved segmented inversion-recovery sequence that suppresses ghost artifacts arising from tissues with long T1 ( > 1.5 s). THEORY AND METHODS Long T1 species such as pericardial fluid can create bright ghost artifacts in segmented, inversion-recovery MRI because of oscillations in longitudinal magnetization between segments.

Objective To evaluate a new long-T1 artifact suppression method and compare its effectiveness with previously reported techniques.
