ECG-gated double inversion recovery fast spin echo sequences are used in cardiac imaging to obtain black blood images.
In contrast, the phase sensitive inversion recovery (PSIR) sequence eliminates the need for selecting the optimal inversion time.
The increased signal is seen on the fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) (Figure 1A), apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) map (Figure 1B), and T2-weighted (Figure 3) sequences.
On T1-weighted images, the mass was hypointense (Figure 2), and on the T2 and fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) images (Figure 3), it was hyperintense.
The short tau inversion recovery (STIR) images showed high signal intensity within the marrow, which is characteristic of osteomyelitis (Figure 4).
