OBJECTIVE Our aim was to measure the relaxation times of the neonatal brain and to use these to derive pulse sequence parameters that enhance the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and contrast of MRI scans of the neonatal brain. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The transverse (T2) and longitudinal (T1) relaxation times were measured for 10 healthy neonates, and the average relaxation times were calculated for both gray and white matter. Simulations using these values were then performed to estimate the optimal… CONTINUE READING
