With the rapid development of human MRI at field strengths > or = 7 T, knowledge of T(2) (*) relaxation times at such field strengths is needed to optimize acquisition parameters and understand relaxation mechanisms in many applications. However, standard T(2) (*) measurements (e.g., using conventional multiecho gradient-echo (GE) sequences) are affected by… CONTINUE READING
