Abstract

We present a comparison of cervical cord metrics obtained using both a whole brain and dedicated cord implementation of a recently introduced quantitative multi-parametric MRI protocol which provides apparent proton density, R1, magnetisation transfer saturation (MTsat) and R2* maps sensitive to microstructural tissue changes in brain and spinal cord. Similar whole cervical cord (levels C1-C5) parameters were obtained using either protocol, and inter-subject variation was low, however in order to investigate tissue-specific cord parameters the dedicated cord protocol with higher in-plane resolution would be desirable.
