As an alternative to time-consuming conventional DIR imaging, a highly efficient pulse sequence is developed for high-resolution isotropic whole-brain gray matter (GM) imaging, named DUal-Echo Single-Slab 3D Turbo Spin Echo (DUESS-TSE). Without long inversion recovery preparation, the proposed method generates sub-millimeter isotropic whole-brain GM images within a clinically acceptable imaging time.
