The engineers originally formulated the inversion constraint as: "if a duplex sheet is followed by a simplex sheet, the simplex sheet has to be fed with a delay that is equal to the inversion time of the duplex sheet.
Fast FLAIR imaging incorporates inversion times in the range of 2000 msec to 3000 msec to cancel the signal from cerebral spinal fluid (CSF).
Here long Inversion Time (TI) is used in FLAIR to nullify the signal from any particular tissue.
2 mmol/kg), most commonly using a segmented k-space inversion-recovery gradient-echo pulse sequence, where the inversion time is set to null signal from normal myocardium.
