PURPOSE Because signal-to-noise performance improves with increased magnetic field strength, the quality of magnetic resonance images is greater at 3.0 tesla (T) than at 1.5 T. Because of the longer T1 values at higher field strength, intravenously administered magnetic resonance contrast agents provide improved T1 enhancement at 3.0 T. We have used these factors to obtain high-quality contrast-enhanced imaging of small intraocular lesions using a standard head radiofrequency volume coil… CONTINUE READING
