Recent reports suggest that phase shift in the
white matter may be related to myelin content. We
assessed the age-related phase changes of the white matter in small children (age
range, 0‒6 years) on phase difference enhanced imaging (PADRE). PADRE
showed progression of the phase changes in the white matter along with age, particularly
in the pyramidal tract and subcortical region in Rolandic are. Whereas, less
phase changes were noted in the subcortical white matter in the temporal lobe. PADRE showed age-related white matter phase shift, suggesting progression of myelination
and myelin content.
