Determination of 3 Tesla MR imaging appearance of the brain and associated structures was the aim of this study. Ti and T2-weighted (W) and 3D reformatted images obtained from 6 adult pigs were used to define the cranioencephalic structures and anatomic details in three planes. Relevant structures were identified and labeled at each level. Especially T I W images scanned with three-dimensional inversion recovery multiplanar reconstruction (3D-1R-MPR) sequence provided excellent visualization for the inner structures of head and brain.
