Spinal cord functional MRI at 3 T: Gradient echo echo-planar imaging versus turbo spin echo


The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare turbo spin echo (TSE) with gradient echo echo-planar imaging (GE-EPI) pulse sequences for functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of spinal cord activation at 3 T field strength. Healthy volunteers underwent TSE and GE-EPI spinal fMRI. The activation paradigm comprised the temporal alternation of… (More)
