Generally, this is done by exploiting differing T1, T2, and T2* values between tissue types. For anatomic (structural) imaging of the brain, the materials of interest are grey matter, white matter, and CSF. 1 shows the approximate relaxation time constants for brain10–18: At 3 T, it is seen that the percent difference in T1 for grey and white matter is greater than that for T2. For generating contrast between grey and white matter, it is preferable to generate contrast by using sequences with T1 contrast weighting.

The greater the maximum slew rate, the less time is required for the gradient field to reach its assigned strength (and to be changed or switched off). Maximum slew rate is a function of the characteristics of both the gradient coils and of the amplifiers. Any conductor has an associated inductance (L) and since V = L(dI/dt) where V is the amplifier output voltage and dI/dT is the rate of current change (slew rate), it is seen that the greater the maximum output voltage of the amplifier, the greater the slew rate will be.

This differs from the spin echo sequence that uses a 180° RF pulse to refocus spins to produce an echo. A significant difference between the two is that the spin echo sequence removes the effect of static field inhomogeneity, and this produces images that are contrast weighted according to T2. The gradient echo sequence does not eliminate the effects of static field inhomogeneity (the echo is produced by gradient polarity switching) and produces images that are contrast weighted according to T2*.
