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.
