High Dynamic Range (HDR) techniques are applied to images weighted by T1, T2 and proton density values to create a novel HDR image. ROIs were drawn around specific tissues including bone, muscle and ligament. Each ROI was evaluated to determine effects of the HDR technique on local contrast. The resulting image retained the best local contrast features from each respective weighting, resulting in an increase in global contrast.
