To clarify the choice of imaging parameters for optimal gradient-recalled echo MR scanning of joints, we analyzed the behavior of contrast-to-noise and signal-to-noise ratios for spoiled (i.e., fast low-angle shot [FLASH] or spoiled GRASS) and steady-state (i.e., gradient-recalled acquisition in the steady state [GRASS] or fast imaging with steady… CONTINUE READING
