MP2RAGE has been modified to acquire two image volumes that can be used to suppress the signals from white matter and CSF respectively. In this study, we show that based on the two intrinsically co-registered volumes, enhanced T1 contrast images compared to traditional MPRAGE images as well as other contrasts such as gray matter image and angiogram can be generated using simple post-processing.
