Three-dimensional high-resolution visualization of brachial plexus using T2-weighted SPACE (T2-SPACE) sequence has very high clinical value for the evaluation of brachial plexopathy. However, conventional T2-SPACE is limited by the lack of relative contrast between nerves and their surrounding tissues. In contrast to T2-SPACE, DANTE-SPACE has been proposed with superior blood flow suppression and might be a potential alternative to address its shortcoming. The objective of this study was to evaluate the T2-weighted DANTE-SPACE for its capability to diagnose brachial plexus due to its superior blood flow suppression.
