The interactive T2 weighted image series shows the skull base starting at the cranial base.
The sequence is strong T2 weighted in order to obtain very high contrast between cerebro spinal fluid (CSF), nerves, vessels and temporal bone.
The 3D pulse sequences with thin slices is tailored to the assessment of brain nerves (e.g. cochlear nerve, facial nerve) as well as the fluid filled inner ear structures, e.g. cochlea, vestibule. The 3D data set with high spatial resolution also allows multiplanar reconstruction in all planes.
There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the
Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced
by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which
states that this has already happened. - Douglas Adams
