Cortical layering on high-resolution T2-weighted MRI

Case Study
Arrigoni, Filippo, M.D. E. Medea Research Institute • Italy

Patient history

A 6.5-year-old male suffering from headache was examined at the E. Medea Research Institute in Bosisio Parini.

MR examination

The examination was performed using the Achieva 3.0T with 32-channel SENSE Head coil.
TR 4100 ms, TE 82 ms, voxels 0.43 x 0.43 x 3 mm, scan time 8.30 min.


MR results

In these high-resolution images, the cortex doesn’t appear as a uniform “ribbon” but in some areas it shows a complex structure made of 3 layers with different intensities. The central hypo-intense layer is probably the IV cortical layer (band of Ballarger).

Clinical impact of using Achieva 3.0T with 32-channel SENSE Head coil

This configuration allowed us to develop sequences focussing on very high resolution. We need to go into the finer detail of the pediatric brain structures.
