PURPOSE The aim of this study was to assess the features of the normal brain development in terms of myelination in infants and young children on fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and to determine if FLAIR imaging is superior to spin echo MR sequences. MATERIALS AND METHODS T1-weighted (T1W) fast spin echo T2-weighted (FSE T2W), and FLAIR images were obtained in 76 pediatric patients between the ages of 0 and 48 months, on a 1 Tesla MR unit. On these… CONTINUE READING
