have demonstrated six-fold accelerated submillimeter whole brain 3D T2-weighted
imaging with deep learning reconstruction (DLR) showed better coefficient of
variation and signal ratio compared with that without DLR. Scan time of around
2.5 min is clinically feasible and the delineation of fine structure is
preserved after DLR processing.
T2-weighted image with better image quality derived from DLR will help
clinicians and radiologists evaluate CSF space abnormalities, and its short
scan time will be feasible for routine clinical examinations.
