So far Slice ThicknessLong TR maximized SNRShort TR maximizes fMRI statsLong TR provides many slicesShort TR provides few slices SNR in MRI is proportional to voxel volume (thinnerslices - less SNR) Thinner slices reduces partial volume effects Thinner slices reduces throughthrough-plan dephasing What is the size of the structure of interest? Isotropic voxel size is preferred The above suggests imaging only brain regions ofinterest (to minimize slices) But processing decisions also play a role Whole brain data is much easier to spatially normalizeMotion correction works best with thin slicesIn general TR’TR’s between 1s and 2s are not too badSpring 2007 fMRI Analysis Course43Spring 2007 fMRI Analysis Course44TE (echo time)Bandwidth Optimum TE is shorter at high field (say 30ms at 3Tversus 50ms at 1.5T) Shorter TE reduces signal loss due to fieldinhomogeneities, but also reduces BOLD effect Rate at which points are sampled (the echoes aredigitized) High bandwidth implies a high sampling rate Sampling of the order of 128 kHz 128kHz/64matrix 2000Hz/pixel Noise is proportional to sampling rate High bandwidth means faster data acquisition (andmore slices can be acquired, with less T2 blurring)Spring 2007 fMRI Analysis Course45Spring 2007 fMRI Analysis Course46Matrix SizeField of View (FOV) Matrix size impact everything Voxel size determined by field of view and matrix size Increasing matrix size decreases voxel size and thus SNR Increasing matrix and FOV maintains constant voxel size, butincreases N and therefore increases SNR Intravoxel dephasing reduced somewhat with smaller voxels(bigger matrix)Δx FOVxNxΔy FOVyNy FOV 200mm/64 matrix 3.125mm voxel dimension Recall SNR proportional to voxel volumeSpring 2007 fMRI Analysis Course47Spring 2007 fMRI Analysis Course488
