  TR/TE (ms) Direction of frequency encoding Section thickness (mm) Inter-slice gap (mm) FOV (mm) Matrix
Axial T1-WI (TSE) 10/5 AP 8 .5 420 × 325 × 306 288 × 224
Coronal T1-WI (TSE) 10/5 R/L 8 .5 425 × 425 × 208 288 × 224
Axial T2-WI (TSE) 644/80 AP 8 1.5 420 × 325 × 306 288 × 224
Coronal T2-WI (TSE) 644/80 R/L 8 1.5 425 × 425 × 208 288 × 224
Sagittal T2-WI (TSE) 644/80 AP 8.8 1.5 400 × 299 × 284 288 × 224
STIR-WI 1.6/20 AP 10 1 450 × 333 × 334 288 × 224
DWI (SS-SE-EPI-with fat suppression) DWI were acquired in a transverse plane, using three b values: low (0–50 s/mm2), intermediate (500–800 s/mm2) and high b value (1000 s/mm2)
1407/66.5 AP 5.9 1.5 420 × 324 × 306 140 × 107
ADC map ADC maps were calculated by the MR system via linear regression analysis of the natural log of signal intensity using all three b values
