It is well known that, at higher field strength, T2*-weighted images show an extensive heterogeneity in white matter fiber bundles. The basis of this phenomenon is still under discussion, as many factors, such as iron concentration, myelination and tissue microstructure, could influence relaxation times. Furthermore, fiber direction in relation to the main magnetic field seems to influence T2* relaxation times. In this study, diffusion tensor imaging and T2* measurements were combined in seven… CONTINUE READING
