MRI Imaging of Adult C57BL/6J Mouse Brain
T2*-weighted MR images were acquired on a 17.6-T magnet @ University of Florida. 3D gradient-echo pulse sequence was used (Number of excitations = 2; TE = 7.5ms; TR = 150ms; Spectral bandwidth=42kHz; Flip angle = 25 degree; Matrix = 256x256 ; FOV = 2.4x1.2cm (47mm isotropic resolution); Imaging time = 5.5 hours). Image reconstruction was performed using Bruker Paravision software. A 3D fast Fourier transform was applied without any apodization, filtering or zero-filling.
