The magnitude of the spin-echo signal for the oil was increased with increase in the styrene content of the polymer.
This means that the spin-echo signal amplitude is reduced to 1/3 and the minus sign means that the echo signal is inverted.
In summary, T2-weighted sequences in body MRI are typically performed with a fast spin-echo sequence.

High T2-weighted (5,200/100/1) axial and coronal spin-echo imaging identified a mass lesion that was surrounded by a CSF-filled sac in the right lateral recess of the sphenoid sinus; the sac projected through the defects in the lateral wall.
