Magic angle effects in MR neurography.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Magic angle effects are well recognized in MR imaging of tendons and ligaments, but have received virtually no attention in MR neurography. We investigated the hypothesis that signal intensity from peripheral nerves is increased when the nerve's orientation to the constant magnetic induction field (B(0)) approaches 55 degrees (the magic angle). METHODS: Ten volunteers were examined with their peripheral nerves at different orientations to B(0) to detect any changes in...
