3e, f) (Tuor et al. 2008). Thus, MTR imaging is sensitive to imaging changes in white matter related to changes in myelination or the inflammatory process. MTR also appears quite sensitive to the detection of cerebral edema, a not unexpected observation considering that increases in brain water would produce decreases in signal in the off-resonance saturation image. Thus, MT imaging can provide diagnostic information within the context of the disease process being investigated, and, although not definitive of the underlying cellular changes, it provides insights into tissue changes that are useful in combination with information obtained from other sequences.
2004). Vasogenic edema refers to an increase in brain water accompanied by dysfunction of the blood–brain barrier, and can be associated with increases in protein related to blood brain–barrier dysfunction. Edema with protein extravasation has been found to be associated most closely with increased T2 , supporting a greater sensitivity of spin coherence to proteins in the cellular microenvironment than increases in tissue water alone (Qiao et al. 2001). In general, standard quantitative MRI can be informative, but because T1 and T2 changes do not have unique 2 Advanced Experimental Magnetic Resonance Imaging 31 tissue correlates, the assessment of tissue status or viability is enhanced by adding other imaging sequences, such as magnetization transfer or diffusion imaging, as discussed in detail below.
