Recent studies showed that the FLAWS sequence provides multiple co-registered T1-weighted contrasts of the brain that exhibit reduced B1 sensitivity. In particular, the FLAWS sequence allows for the generation of a standard anatomical contrast, a contrast with WM signal suppression and a GM-specific contrast. This study introduces a combination of FLAWS images to generate a new contrast that may be suitable for the detection of brain lesions at 7T. While the preliminary results of this study are promising, a further validation is required by imaging subjects with lesions and comparing the new FLAWS contrast with other MR sequences.
