In this work, we propose a robust and effective method of an accentuated T1 weighted (aT1W) method. By dividing T1W images by proton density weighted (PDW) images, both obtained using GRE but with different flip angles, the resultant aT1W images offer improved level of T1 contrast. By adopting the multi-dimensional integration (MDI) technique, aT1W images have high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) despite the use of division operation.
