Classically, fat, proteins, gadolinium, melanin and blood are considered to appear hyperintense in T1w images. Additionally, e.g. flow, calcium, manganese can appear hyperintense as well. The mechanisms leading to this appearance are different: short spin-lattice relaxation time (proteins, fat), modification of the magnet field (melanin, gadolinium), and time of flight effect (flow).
