  • Introduction Functional imaging at ultra-high field is, besides other advantages, motivated by the expected increased spatial specificity of spin echo EPI. Due to the fast decaying intravascular spin echo signal at high field, the main contribution to the signal is expected to come from the extravascular spins of the microvasculature. Simulations in [1] and [2] predict ratios of microto macrovasculature signal of up to 1.7 resp. 2.8 at 9.4 T. Also, [3] found decreased activation in veins for… CONTINUE READING
