Improvements in short-axis blood-myocardium contrast in the heart with the use of four magnetization preparation schemes applied before the imaging sequence are demonstrated. Gradient-echo cine cardiac images are acquired and compared at 0.95 T incorporating T2, T1rho, magnetization transfer, and double inversion (black blood) preparations in a series of(More)
Background. Since the escalation of the outbreak of Ebola virus disease (Ebola) in August 2014, the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) has provided guidance to clinicians on the management of persons under investigation (PUIs) for Ebola. On October 27, 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention instituted a policy of active monitoring (AM),(More)
A novel T*(2)-weighted contrast-preparation scheme is described for use with segmented k-space cardiac sequences. This approach frees the imaging phase from the requirement of a long TE and, hence, a relatively long TR. A [90 degrees (x)-tau-90 degrees (rho)] preparation scheme is used to acquire four image data sets with the phase rho of the second pulse(More)
