In vitro investigation of poor cerebrospinal fluid suppression on fluid-attenuated inversion recovery images in the presence of a gadolinium-based contrast agent.


Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) enhancement on fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) images obtained post-gadolinium (Gd)-based agent injection is described in stroke and multiple sclerosis. Blood brain barrier (BBB) disruption with contrast agent extravasation into CSF shortens T(1) relaxation times, reducing fluid suppression. Reduced fluid suppression on… (More)
