The SWIp images provide increased visibility of the corpus callosum injury compared to the T2-weighted, diffusion weighted and gradient echo images, see the box.

SWIp also provides increased visibility of the cortical contusion (arrows) compared to gradient echo imaging.

Clinical impact of SWIp

SWIp helps to characterize the extent of the patient’s injury, which is important to know for short term care and longer term prognosis and rehabilitation.
