The Significance of T2 Changes in the Hippocampus
Relaxation times T1 and T2 can be measured accurately and reproducibly in the brain (Tofts and Du Boulay, 1990), enabling white matter in different disease groups to be differentiated (Miller et al., 1989). However, scanner performance can degrade both accuracy and reproducibility, and the pathological cause of changes in relaxation times has yet to be established with certainty.
