3T MR neurography using three-dimensional diffusion-weighted PSIF: technical issues and advantages
Three-dimensional (3D) diffusion-weighted reversed fast imaging with steady state precession (3D DW-PSIF) MR sequence has the potential to create nerve-specific images. The authors describe the technical issues and their initial experience with this imaging technique employed for peripheral MR neurography.
