The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of the fast gradient-recalled echo (GRE) sequence parameters on the contrast dynamic range and signal sensitivity, to optimize the magnetic resonance (MR) sequence for contrast media pharmacokinetic assessment. Effects of the fast low-angle shot (FLASH), Fast acquisition at steady rate (FAST), and radiofrequency-spoiled (RF)-FAST sequence parameters were studied in vitro. The FAST sequence had the highest sensitivity in low gadolinium… CONTINUE READING
