Flip Angle
(FA) The flip angle a is used to define the angle of excitation for a field echo pulse sequence. It is the angle to which the net magnetization is rotated or tipped relative to the main magnetic field direction via the application of a RF excitation pulse at the Larmor frequency. It is also referred to as the tip angle, nutation angle or angle of nutation.
The radio frequency power (which is proportional to the square of the amplitude) of the pulse is proportional to a through which the spins are tilted under its influence. Flip angles between 0° and 90° are typically used in gradient echo sequences, 90° and a series of 180° pulses in spin echo sequences and an initial 180° pulse followed by a 90° and a 180° pulse in inversion recovery sequences.

Flow Related Enhancement
(FRE) Flow related enhancement could be seen most for blood flow, but also for other liquids with some MR imaging techniques, as an increase in intensity due to the washout of saturated spins. FRE provides positive contrast ("bright blood") of vascular details in time of flight MRA as well as the physiologic characterization of blood flow.
If stationary spins within the scanned region experience only an incomplete T1 relaxation between the repeated radio frequency (RF) excitations, this results in fewer signal of the stationary tissue (compared to inflowing blood with completely relaxed spins). The degree of the flow related enhancement is proportional to the blood flow velocity and the used repetition time. The use of flow compensation (gradient moment nulling) improves the FRE especially in gradient echo sequences.

The occurrence of a low signal in regions of flow. For a spin echo sequence, this is caused in part by a lack of refocusing of blood, which is excited by the 90° pulse but not by the 180° pulse. For a gradient echo sequence, this is caused by the dephasing of blood signal.

(GEMS) This pulse sequence uses a changeable flip angle instead of a 90° pulse and a gradient instead of a RF pulse to rephase the FID.
T2*, T1 weighted and proton density images can be acquired. The flip angle in combination with the TR determines the T1 weighting and the TE controls the amount of dephasing. To minimize T2* the echo time should be short.
