For the detection of brain metastases, either contrast-enhanced 3D gradient echo (GRE) or spin echo (SE) imaging with black-blood (BB) imaging techniques are commonly used. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether a deep learning (DL) model using both 3D BB imaging and 3D GRE imaging may improve the detection and segmentation performance of brain metastases compared to that using only 3D GRE imaging. We demonstrated that the combined 3D BB and 3D GRE DL model can improve the detection and segmentation performance of brain metastases, especially in detecting small metastases.
