  • Note:—IPAT indicates integrated parallel acquisition technique; SAG, sagittal; FSE, fast spin-echo; Ax, axial; GRE, gradient-echo; NA, not applicable. Both the TR and the acquisition time will be a variable of the frequency of patient motion. They should be adjusted inversely with concatenations to keep the effective TR short for T1 sequences.
