Description
The movement of a subject is a major problem in MRI experiments and diagnosis. At first, this review introduces a new technology named the “Propeller Technique” which can improve the motion artifact by changing the data sampling method in the K trajectory. Our experience of a case who underwent measurement by Propeller technique is reported and the effect of this technique is explained. One of the recent hot topics is the appearance of the clinical 3TMR instrument, with its characteristic differences from that at 1.5T. The advantage of 3T is that it facilitates the evaluation of functional and metabolic information using MR spectroscopy (MRS) and functional MRI. The application of proton MRS in clinical cases is shown and the standard method to use proton MRS in a clinical setting is demonstrated. Furthermore, the new techniques, which can measure important metabolites in small amount such as neurotransmitters, was developed using a high signal to noise ratio and frequency resolution, which are advantages of 3T.
