Recent works have shown that the T2*-weighted
conventional GRE sequences may be the best method for
detecting cerebral diseases, such as cerebral venous
thrombosis and it would seem to be beneficial to
integrate a T2*-weighted conventional GRE sequence into
the MR protocol to diagnose cerebral venous thrombosis.
To integrate yet another scanning sequence to the
routine protocol, the most important concern lies in the
increased examination time. In this study, a
simultaneous method of acquiring both T2* and
phase-contrast (PC) angiography is proposed.
