MRI Study Protocols

An important aspect of the harmonization of imaging acquisition in CENTER-TBI, has been the development of specific CENTER-TBI MR protocols including a high-resolution 3D T1-weighted, a T2-weighted, a FLAIR, a DTI, a T2* sequence (gradient echo and/or SWI), and (optionally) a resting-state fMRI. These protocols were mandatory for each CENTER-TBI MR patient.
