PURPOSE To improve multiple sclerosis (MS) research by introducing a new type of contrast, namely, the combination of fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) data acquired at 3.0 T and 7.0 T susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) phase data. The approach of this new contrast is whole-brain coverage with 3.0 T-FLAIR data for lesion detection--currently limited at 7.0 T due to specific absorption rate (SAR) limits--overlaid with high-resolution, small vessel, and iron-related 7.0 T SWI… CONTINUE READING
