Magnetization transfer (MT) is an exciting new MR technique.
Through magnetization transfer ratio (MTR), developed about five years ago, doctors can see how severe the tissue damage is from MS--damage that can go undetected by traditional MRI.
31) By utilizing a special off-resonance pulse, magnetization transfer (MT) reduces signal intensity in normal white matter, resulting in enhanced contrast and detection of lesions; an additive contrast effect can be obtained with gadolinium-enhanced images.
In the symposium entitled Critical issues on MS diagnosis and treatment, M Filippi (Italy) described the importance of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in the very early diagnosis of MS, presenting the recent application of quantitative MR techniques, such as magnetization transfer and diffusion-weighted, to the study of MS.
Topics addressing normal-appearing gray matter include assessing its pathology, measuring imaging gray matter volume, assessing magnetization transfer and diffusion-weighted imaging, and using MR spectroscopy and functional MRI.
Clever pulse sequence manipulations such as applying magnetization transfer prepulses only at the center one third of k-space can maintain improved tissue contrast while depositing considerably less RF energy.
The magnetization transfer option (fcmtse PSD) was used along with FC and SAT (I) on all postcontrast T1-weighted axial images, with the exception of the scan shown in Fig.
