Bolus injections of gadolinium-DTPA result in high contrast concentration in the distal vessels within the brain and cause a local disturbance of the magnetic field with a shortening of T2 relaxation time. Pulse frequencies were designed to demonstrate inhomogeneities in the magnetic field. The resultant reduction in T2-weighted gradient echo signals was used in order to examine changes in regional perfusion caused by pathological conditions. Cerebral tumours showed variable perfusion patterns… CONTINUE READING
