Acceleration‐selective arterial spin labeling for intracranial MR angiography with improved visualization of cortical arteries and suppression of cortical veins
A new approach for intracranial MR angiography (MRA) is introduced, using acceleration‐selective arterial spin labeling (AccASL) to investigate the arterial visualization and venous suppression using AccASL. Expand
Balanced Turbo Field Echo with Extended k-space Sampling: A Fast Technique for the Thoracic Ductography
The thoracic duct including draining location of the venous system was overall well visualized on bTFEe, compared to TSE. Expand
Improvement of visualization of cardiac wall in diffusion-weighted imaging using cardiac triggering and acceleration motion correction
Introduction Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) of the body has shown the clinical utilities for detection of tumor and for the evaluation of pathologic conditions. However, the cardiac DWI oftenExpand
The Visibility of the Terminal Thoracic Duct Into the Venous System Using MR Thoracic Ductography with Balanced Turbo Field Echo Sequence.
MRTD with bTFE is a robust imaging modality to visualize the terminal portion of the thoracic duct into the venous system in the subclavian region. Expand
Microelectrochemical Aspects of Interstitial Carbon in Type 304 Stainless Steel: Improving Pitting Resistance at MnS Inclusion
Type 304 stainless steel was subjected to low-temperature carburizing treatment to add excess interstitial carbon to its surface. The average carbon concentration in the carburized layer was ca. 2.6Expand
Non‐contrast enhanced 4D intracranial MR angiography based on pseudo‐continuous arterial spin labeling with the keyhole and view‐sharing technique
4D dynamic MR angiography (4D‐MRA) using pseudo‐continuous arterial spin labeling (pCASL), combined with Keyhole and View‐sharing (4D‐PACK) for scan acceleration, is introduced. Its validity forExpand
Optimal strategy for measuring intraventricular temperature using acceleration motion compensation diffusion-weighted imaging
AMC-DWI provided an intraventricular temperature that was close to or slightly higher than the body temperature in either condition, however, c-D WI- and MC- DWI-measured temperatures were higher thanThe body temperature, particularly in the TV. Expand
Robust visualization of middle cerebral artery main trunk by enhanced acceleration‐selective arterial spin labeling (eAccASL) for intracranial MRA
A new sequence for intracranial MRA is developed, named enhanced acceleration‐selective arterial spin labeling (eAccASL), to improve main artery visualization at middle cerebral artery (MCA). The aimExpand
Non-enhanced and Non-gated MR Angiography for Robust Visualization of Peripheral Arteries Using Enhanced Acceleration-selective Arterial Spin Labeling (eAccASL)
In patient observation, the advantages with eAccASL were found in arterial visualization on the collateral vessels and without artifacts affected by arrhythmia events. Expand
Time-spatial Labeling Inversion Pulse (Time-SLIP) with Pencil Beam Pulse: A Selective Labeling Technique for Observing Cerebrospinal Fluid Flow Dynamics
PB Time-SLIP provided more selective labeling in CSF than c time-spatial labeling inversion pulse, particularly in complex anatomical regions, in eight volunteers and one patient using a 1.5T MRI. Expand
