Influence of baseline hematocrit on between-subject BOLD signal change using gradient echo and asymmetric spin echo EPI.

Abstract

The dependence of BOLD signal change (BSC) on baseline hematocrit is in the process of being characterized, primarily using conventional Gradient Echo (GE) echo planar imaging (EPI). We describe the first empiric exploration of this relationship using, in addition to GE, Spin Echo (SE) and two Asymmetric Spin Echo EPI sequences (ASE10 and ASE20), which are… (More)
