The use of synthetic MRI, a multi-parametric quantitative MRI, in the pediatric population has been increased dramatically in the recent years showing promising results. With this approach, it is possible to synthesize any contrast-weighted images, to obtain automatic brain segmentation and volumetry, and to evaluate the myelin in a single scan. The image quality of synthetic images has been shown comparable to that of conventional MR images, and the features of synthetic MRI might be used to investigate children brain development and diseases. In this exhibit, we aim to show the recent updates of synthetic MRI in pediatric brain imaging.
