OBJECTIVE To determine the applicability of a fast spin-echo (FSE) pulse sequence for T2 relaxation time measurements in diagnostic imaging of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and in epilepsy research. To compare FSE T2-relaxometry to the measurements with multi-echo sequence and visual assessment of MR scans. METHODS MR imaging and T2 relaxometry was performed with widely used 1.5 T scanner only. Fast dual-echo sequence (TE-14/85 ms) and multi-echo pulse sequence were used for T2 measurements… CONTINUE READING
