This is known as saturation recovery. Inversion recovery, however, doubles the dynamic range (−M0 → M0) of the longitudinal magnetization over saturation recovery (0 → M0) and therefore produces more contrast (Fig. 16), and allows for the nulling of one component based on its T1 if desired. T2 contrast weighting is also of use in brain imaging. 1 it is seen that there is a very substantial difference between the T2 of CSF and those of grey and white matter. This is a consequence of CSF consisting largely of free water.

Slice offset (from isocenter) and slice thickness are determined by the frequency offset and bandwidth of the RF excitation, and by the gradient strength. G. Walsh 20 • For fixed excitation bandwidth: –– Increasing gradient strength reduces slice thickness The opposites apply for the above, so for example, decreasing gradient strength for fixed frequency offset increases the slice offset. As with gradient assignments for selection of image planes, these parameters are all set in a user-transparent fashion.

For example, doubling the slice thickness will double the SNR, but this change must be weighed against the effect of additional partial volume effects due to the additional anatomy contained in the larger slice. 15, increasing TR increases the available signal in a partial saturation acquisition. This change must be weighed against the effect on contrast. For grey and white matter, optimum contrast was achieved with a TR of about 1 s. The critical factor for distinguishing two structures from each other is the contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR), which is the ratio of the signal difference between two structures and the noise.
