Abstract

A new method of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of pulmonary perfusion utilizing an ultrashort echo time (TE) turbo FLASH and signal targeting with alternating radio-frequency (STAR) technique is described. This method performs subtraction of interleave acquisitions of two ultrashort TE turbo FLASH images, in one of which signal from blood is reduced by the previous application of an inversion recovery (IR) radio-frequency (RF) pulse to the inflowing spins.
