Figure 6

Dependence of image contrast for lipid rich atheroma and fibrous tissue is shown as 3D plot (left panel). Note the image contrast between atheroma and fibrous tissue as a function of unique combination of scan optimized parameters-TE and TR, at 9.4 T. Multicontrast method is represented to demonstrate different feature space intensity 3D distributions of plaque components using combined T1-w, T2-w and proton density weighting.
