1 ECE 380 Biomedical Imaging Spring 2010 Homework 7 Solutions 1) The hydrogen nuclei in the body are found mainly in fat and water. The T 2 value of fat was measured to be 100 ms and that of water to be 500 ms. In a spin-echo experiment, calculate the delay between the 90 o pulse and the 180 o that maximizes the difference in signal intensities between the fat and water.

Calculate the phase acquired by the sample located at y=10 cm ? Assume that a 1 G/cm phase encoding gradient is applied in the +y-direction for 20 ms. (15 points)
