fast spin-echo

fast spin-echo (FSE)

a magnetic resonance imaging technique that uses multiple spin-echoes to reduce imaging times in comparison to spin-echo imaging. See also spin-echo.

Total imaging time was 25 minutes and images obtained were: Sagittal and Axial T2-weighted fast spin-echo images; Axial T1-weighted spin-echo images; Axial T2-weighted spin-echo images through any lesion images with the addition of frequency-selective fat suppression; and Coronal T2-weighted fast spin-echo images.

These techniques can be used to decrease imaging time in both fast spin-echo and gradient-echo imaging, and are best thought of in the framework of those sequences rather than in isolation.
