Abstract

In spin echo imaging, T1 contrast is not only due to the primary spin echo. T1 contrast can also be affected by additional spin and stimulated echoes originating from prior RF. This is the finding of a long-standing investigation into the reduction in T1 contrast between the present Lx MRI systems and the older 5.4 systems.
