STAGE Diamagnetic SWI

Visualization of the optic radiations is of clinical importance for diagnosing many diseases and depicting their anatomic structures for neurosurgical interventions. In this study, we quantify proton density, T1, T2*, and susceptibility of the optic radiation fiber bundles in a series of 10 healthy control participants using strategically acquired gradient echo imaging.

Furthermore, we introduce a novel means to enhance the contrast of the optic radiations using diamagnetic susceptibility weighted imaging.
