  • Introduction: From a clinical viewpoint, T1-weighted images is used to evaluate lesion signal at pre& post-contrast enhancement. Especially in contrast-enhanced cases, T1-weighted 3D variable flip angle (VFA) fast spin-echo (FSE) sequence called, SPACE [1] is recognized as superior to 3D MPRAGE [2] and gradually accepted in clinical practice [3]. On the other hand, MPRAGE is one of the most widely used sequences for brain volumetry. It is a magnetization-prepared gradient echo (GE) imaging with… CONTINUE READING
