  • Since 1/T2 of protons of tissue water is generally much greater than 1/T1 at typical imaging fields, small single‐ion contrast agents–such as Gd(DTPA), which make comparable incremental contributions and therefore smaller fractional contributions to 1/T2 compared to 1/T1–are not as desirable for contrast‐enhancement as agents that could enhance 1/T2 preferentially. In principle, such specialized agents will only be effective at higher fields because the field dependence (dispersion) of 1/T1 is… CONTINUE READING
