Therefore, T1 relaxation is also called spin-lattice relaxation and also longitudinal (Z-axis) relaxation. 2). We now defined T1 time for a tissue but how do we measure it? As shown in Fig. 0 (Mz) in 3,100 ms. To measure T1 time, we need to look at how much time passed for the z-magnetization to reach 63% of its original value. 3 The T1 relaxation time is defined as the time required for z-magnetization to reach 63% of its original value. The times required for z-magnetization to reach its original value and 63% values are shown in the plot above.
It might be important to note that other reconstruction techniques such as projection reconstruction can also be used for MR image reconstruction. However, Fourier Transformation is still the main image transformation method in commercial MR sequences and systems. K-Space or Raw Data Manipulations The raw or k-space MR data carry a great deal of information as we had mentioned before. In the modern MRI, we manipulate the raw data to create faster imaging sequences. We would like to expose you briefly how the k-space relates to reconstructed image in this section and we will elaborate on this at the later chapters for some of the new imaging techniques.
As a simple example, TE time for a routine brain imaging can vary from 85 to 130 ms while it can vary from 500 to 1,000 ms for an MRCP examination. In a T2 weighted image, there is a simple rule we should remember: The tissue signal in a T2 weighted image is proportional to its T2 relaxation time. , fat). We can easily confirm this fact from the T2 weighted imaging by looking at hyperintense CSF signal and hypointense fat signal. Please note that T2 imaging with FSE or TSE type sequences results in a hyperintense fat signal because of what we call J-coupling effect.
