Abstract

The need to develop faster imaging techniques has led to the implementation of fast spin-echo imaging, EPI, and hybrid imaging techniques. this article discusses two of these faster imaging techniques, fast fluid- attenuated inversion-recovery (FLAIR) imaging and half-Fourier acquisition single-shot turbo spin-echo (HASTE) imaging, and their potential clinical application in neurologic diseases. FLAIR imaging, in particular, has demonstrated considerable promise for the evaluation of intracranial pathology. HASTE imaging can be used for rapid imaging of the brain or spine in those patients who are claustrophobic or who have difficulty remaining still, but it does not yet have a primary role in clinical neuroradiology.
