Introduction: The outcome of automated quantitative morphometric population studies relies greatly on the quality of the cerebral anatomical images. For these applications, it is crucial that the images be uniform and have high spatial resolution, SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) and CNR (contrast-to-noise ratio) between brain tissues. This study evaluates the performance of three different T1-weighted pulse sequences at 3T (Tesla) in terms of SNR and CNR efficiency, as well as signal intensity NU… CONTINUE READING
