Proton relaxation times T1 and T2 of macromolecular solutions, bovine brain tissues, and experimental cat brain edema tissues were studied as a function of water concentration, protein concentration, and temperature. A linear relation was found between the inverse of the weight fraction of tissue water and the spin-lattice relaxation rate, R1, based on a fast proton exchange model for relaxation. This correlation was also found for the spin-spin relaxation rate, R2, of gray matter samples and… CONTINUE READING
