(DIR or DIRT1) Double inversion recovery T1 measurement is a T1 weighted black blood MRA sequence in which the signal from blood is suppressed. The inversion time to suppress blood is described as the duration between the initial inversion pulse and time point that the longitudinal magnetization of blood reaches the zero point. The readout starts at the blood suppression inversion time (BSP TI) and blood in the imaging slice gives no signal. This inversion time is around 650 ms with a 60 beat per minute heart rate at 1.5 T.
The TI can be decreased by using a wider receive bandwidth, shorter echo train length and/or narrow trigger window. Wide bandwidth also decreases the blurring caused by long echo trains at the expense of signal to noise ratio. In case of in plane or slow flow the suppression of the signal from blood may be incomplete. With increased TE or change of the image plane the blood suppression can be improved.
Double inversion recovery is a breath hold technique with one image per acquisition used in cardiovascular imaging. The patient is instructed to hold the breath in expiration (if not possible also inspiration can be taken), so that the end diastolic volume in the cardiac chambers would be the same during entire scanning. DIR provides fine details of the boundary between the lumen and the wall of the cardiac chambers and main vascular and heart structures, pericardium, and mediastinal tissues.

With this magnetic resonance angiography technique flowing blood appears dark.
MR black blood techniques have been developed for cardiovascular imaging to improve segmentation of myocardium from the blood pool. Black blood MRA techniques decrease the signal from blood with reference to the myocardium and make it easier to perform cardiac chamber segmentation.
ECG gated spin echo sequences with presaturation pulses for magnetization preparation will show strong intravascular signal loss due to flow effects when appropriate imaging conditions including spatial presaturation are used. The sequence use the flow void effect as blood passes rapidly through the selected slice.
For dark blood preparation, a pair of nonselective and selective 180 inversion pulses are used, followed by a long inversion time to null signal from inflowing blood. A second selective inversion pulse can also be applied with short inversion time to null the fat signal. These in cardiac imaging used black blood techniques are referred to as double inversion recovery T1 measurement turbo spin echo or fast spin echo, and double-inversion recovery STIR.
