The purpose of our study was to compare 3D SHINKEI based MRN with the DWIBS neurography in the anatomical visualization of the brachial plexus at 1.5T. MRN image quality generated by 3D SHINKEI and DWIBS in five healthy volunteers was studied and was scored by two radiologists. While both the techniques were scored similar in visualization of the root, SHINKEI based MRN scored higher in depicting the trunk and cord area of brachial plexus with respect to DWIBS neurogrphy. Our ongoing work will include further optimization of SHINKEI based MRN at 1.5 T to improve brachial plexus visualization.
