Dependence of blood R2 relaxivity on CPMG echo-spacing at 2.35 and 7 T.

Abstract

The transverse relaxation rate (R(2)) of fresh human blood has been investigated at high and ultrahigh field, to characterize the R(2) dependency on blood sample oxygenation, hematocrit, and Carr-Purcell Meiboom-Gill sequence inter-echo spacing. Data were fitted to chemical exchange and diffusion models to assess their performance at different field… (More)
