We are all familiar with the role of postcontrast-T1GRE images in MR brain imaging especially in the presence of space occupying lesions. But very few are aware of the role of postcontrast-T2FLAIR images in similar circumstances. Though T2-effect of gadolinium and T1-effect of T2FLAIR has been established for long yet it has not been utilized intensively and extensively in practice. However, there have been few isolated studies establishing the role of postcontrast-T2FLAIR images in variety of brain pathologies. In this study, we aim to evaluate the role of postcontrast-T2FLAIR images in various pathological conditions of brain in wider spectrum and evaluate its usefulness in comparison with postcontrast T1GRE images in clinical practice.
