The bipolar gradient technique measures the intravascular fraction by removing flowing spins. The T 2-relaxation-under-spin-tagging (TRUST) technique modulates the TE to differentiate between intravascular and extravascular spins based on T 2. These modules were combined into a single time-encoded pseudo-continuous arterial spin labeling

Changing the number of slices without changing slice thickness, on the other hand, changes the imaging and saturation slab thicknesses, which changes the interaction between the inversion and saturation slab profiles. This could be partly overcome by

Nov 01, 2006 The second presat pulse had a fixed crusher gradient area of 41.41 mT/m·ms, while the inversion crusher area was 82.82 mT/m·ms. The acquisition parameters for the PICORE experiments were 28 acquisitions (14 tag and 14 control), TE/TI/TR=20/1000/5000 ms, five 5-mm slices with a 10% slice gap between slices.

May 28, 2016 Crusher gradients are applied at each side of the slice-selective gradient (applied during the 180° pulse) to achieve more accurate refocusing at time TE. So we apply a gradient in the negative direction that has an area equal to ½ of that of the readout gradient (Fig. 14-5). The length of the readout gradient is the sampling time (Ts).

Spoiling Questions and Answers in MRI

Gradient spoiling. In this method spoiling is performed by applying the slice-select (and sometimes readout) gradients with variable amplitudes at the end of each cycle just before the next RF pulse. The strength of the spoiler gradient is varied linearly or semi-randomly from view to view.

Sep 21, 2004 Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is among the most important medical imaging techniques available today. There is an installed base of approximately 15,000 MRI scanners worldwide. Each of these scanners is capable of running many different "pulse sequences", which are governed by physics and engineering principles, and implemented by software programs that control the MRI

A crusher gradient was used after each pulse and the effect of varying the different crusher areas was explored. The simulation did not include perfusion and therefore there should theoretically be no difference between the tag and control images. Optimal as well as suboptimal

Simultaneous Imaging of Myocardial Motion and Chamber

Two nonselective radio frequency (RF) rectangular pulses of equal area separated by a tagging gradient were designed to create 1-1 SPAMM tags in the image. Crusher gradients were applied along the readout and phase-encode axes after the tag preparation to spoil any residual transverse magnetization.

Last Update: How To Run A 2-coil ASL Experiment

• SE case: the crusher gradients are gzsp1 and gzsp2. The decay ramp of gzsp1 and the attack ramp of gzsp2 are separated by delta1. These crushers surround the 180 pulse so a_gzsp3 and a_gzsp4 should be set to the same value. (so δ is pw_gzsp1/2 and ∆ is delta1) • GE case: the crusher gradients are gzsp3 and gzsp4 with the attack ramps

High performance MRI simulations of motion on multi-GPU

Jul 04, 2014 Simulation of a simple Gradient Echo pulse sequence and a CINE pulse sequence on the corresponding anatomical model was performed. Myocardial tagging was also investigated. In pulse sequence design, software crushers were introduced to accommodate the long execution times in order to avoid spurious echoes formation.

MR Artifacts, Safety, and Quality Control RadioGraphics

A common way to reduce the motion artifact caused by through-plane flow is to apply a saturation band adjacent to the imaging section. With this method, all spins within the slab are tilted toward the axial plane by a 90° RF pulse and then spoiled with the application of strong gradient crusher pulses before image acquisition starts.
