Three methods for whole-brain high-resolution T
are evaluated at 7T: 3-TI MPRAGE, MP2RAGE and MP3RAGE.
Each acquires a number of T
images, allowing lookup of T
instead of a least-squares fit, and is B
to varying degrees. All acquisitions were matched at
10min total scan time and 1mm isotropic resolution.
MP2RAGE demonstrated the highest T
while 3-TI MPRAGE had the lowest difference from a
reference map but has reduced T
NR due to the
acceleration required to achieve the desired scan time.
MP3RAGE is a good compromise method, with.higher T
than 3-TI MPRAGE, but higher accuracy than MP2RAGE.
