T2-weighted image

T2-weighted image

An MRI term for an image created using longer echo time (TE) and repetition times (TR), whose contrast and brightness are predominately determined by T2 signals.

The lesion was isointense relative to muscle on the T1-weighted image and hyperin tense on the T2-weighted image with a swirled appearance [Figure 1].
Sacral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) obtained by the previous doctor showed a low-intensity T1-weighted image of the left second sacral ala and a high-intensity T2-weighted image and a short TI inversion recovery (STIR) image (bone marrow edema) compared with the right side.
In our case, also on FLAIR image bilateral white matter lesions in centrum semiovale and in corpus callosum were better observed than the T2-weighted image (Figure 1).
On the sagittal T2-weighted image with FLAIR, an increased signal was noted in the parietal cortex in the post-central gyrus and fornix, mamillary bodies and peri-aqueductal region.
Besides, hyper-intensity signal of C3-T2 level of spinal cord in T2-weighted image, and hypo- to isointense in T1-weighted image also noted [Figure 1].
On the T1-weighted image, the tumour showed homogeneous signal intensity equal to that of muscle; on the T2-weighted image, it had heterogeneous, low signal intensity with crack-like high-intensity lesions (Fig.
With T2-weighted image it is possible to assess the cochlea, the semicircular canals, the internal acoustic meatus and the cerebello-pontine angle.
The selected images are images where the examination occurs during the relaxation took place, such as T1-weighted image and T2-weighted image (Figure 2).
Crues et al (9) suggests that "It]he knee must be scanned in the axial, coronal and sagittal planes using thin sections (3 to 5 mm thick) with a combination of T1- and T2-weighted techniques, including at least one T2-weighted image with fat suppression.
This mass was markedly heterogeneous on the T1 and T2-weighted image, with areas of T1 hyperintensity suspected to represent hemorrhagic material, as well as central T2 hyperintensity likely related to necrosis, and exhibited irregular internal and nodular peripheral enhancement.
