MR neurography (MRN) is a useful technique with which to evaluate abnormal conditions of the peripheral nerves such as chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP). We have developed a new simultaneous T2 mapping and MRN method called SHINKEI Quant. Patients with CIDP could be distinguished from normal subjects in size and T2 value of the peripheral nerves with SHINKEI Quant.
