Abstract

We introduced and optimized a novel sequence of fast (about 4min), volumetric, high resolution, simultaneous bright- and black-blood imaging with sufficient T1 contrast between enhanced metastasis and surrounding brain parenchyma for their differentiation. This proposed sequence can be used for 3-dimensional volumetric T1-weighted bright- and black-blood imaging in contrast-enhanced studies and may be promising for detecting small brain metastases by improving differentiation between blood vessels and small brain metastases.
