Introduction

Susceptibility-Weighted Imaging in the Evaluation of Cerebrovascular Hemodynamics

Guest Editor Carlos Zamora

Guest EditorCarlos Zamora

Susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) is a high-resolution, fully velocity-compensated gradient-echo MRI sequence that maximizes intrinsic contrast differences between tissues by virtue of their local magnetic properties. This technique exploits susceptibility information contained within phase acquisitions and merges such with magnitude … more »

Our research team has focused on the clinical applications of advanced neuroimaging techniques, such as susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) in the evaluation of pediatric neurologic disorders. SWI provides useful functional information about blood oxygenation levels in intracranial vessels. In pediatric arterial ischemic stroke … more »
