3D DT-MRI Using a Reduced-FOV Approach and Saturation Pulses.
Magnetic Resonance in Medicine
853 - 857.
Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) can provide vital insights into brain connectivity, and may become an important tool for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disease. However, DTI's intrinsic low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and vulnerability to ghosting artifacts can result in poor image quality with low spatial resolution, which limits its clinical applications. In this study, a new double-shot EPI sequence (half-FOV EPI) with high spatial resolution was developed. This method enables DT measurements to be obtained with high isotropic spatial resolution and whole-brain coverage. To avoid ghosting artifacts, the data are combined in image space rather than in k-space. © 2004 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
