5 Clinical Applications In certain applications it is advantageous to perform a 3D data acquisition. Most applications of 3D imaging involved the use of TSE or EPI sequences with large TE (echo time) values for T2 weighting and short TR short TE GRE sequences for Tl weighting. Therefore, high-resolution imaging can be obtained in short scanning times in any desired weighting. The following are some areas where 3D imaging has been proven to be clinically useful. MR Angiography. Three-dimensional GRE sequence with very short TE and TR will produce a very short acquisition time, catching the peak of the arterial enhancement after contrast administration throughout the region of interest.

The gradient of the data set is defined as the rate of change in intensity values and emphasizes gray level differences. The greater the difference, the greater the gradient magnitude. In digital images, the gradient cannot be computed directly - instead we use some discrete approximation. The simplest variant is to calculate the components of a gradient G for a surface voxel at (i, j, k) from the gray levels, f, of its six neighbors along the main axes: Gx = j(i+ 1,j,k) - j(i-1,j,k) Gy = j(i,j+ 1,k) - j(i,j-1,k) Gz = j(i,j,k+ 1) - j(i,j,k-1) Shading In general, shading is the realistic display of an object based on the position, orientation and characteristics of its surface and the light sources illuminating it.
