Chapter 2 discusses commonly used pulse sequences for clinical abdominal imaging, focusing on those techniques that can be completed within the duration of a breath hold. However, to understand why certain pulse-sequence techniques are preferable over others with respect to acquiring images with relatively few breathing artifacts, the review begins with conventional2D, multi-slice spin-echo imaging to lay the foundation for subsequent discussion of techniques that are of particular relevance to abdominal MRI because of their short acquisition times. This is followed by review of some of the major factors that contribute to the appearance of blood flow in vessels, and concludes with a review of several practical issues that are important to consider when performing abdominal MR imaging.
