PURPOSE To evaluate sources of error when using a multiecho sequence for quantitative T2 mapping of articular cartilage at 1.5 T. MATERIALS AND METHODS Phantom measurements were used to assess the contribution of stimulated echoes to inaccuracy of T2 measurements in cartilage using a multiecho sequence. Five volunteer studies compared in vivo single-echo spin echo results to multiecho, single-slice and multiecho, multislice acquisitions for assessment of both the stimulated echo and… CONTINUE READING
