T2 relaxation makes an important contribution to tissue contrast in magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Many tissues are known to exhibit multicomponent T2 relaxation that suggests some compartmental segregation of mobile protons on a T2 timescale. Magnetization transfer (MT) is another relaxation mechanism that can be used to produce tissue contrast in MR… CONTINUE READING
