Spin echo and gradient echo cine. 63-year-old patient who has undergone surgical repair of coarctation of the aorta. The images are oriented parallel to the long-axis of the aortic arch and shown in diastole. A. ECG-triggered fast spin echo sequence acquired with a double inversion preparation pulse to suppress signal from flowing blood. Note that the resulting signal from blood is dark. B. ECG-gated steady-state free precession cine sequence. Note the signal from blood is bright.
