repetition time and echo time in MRI

Sharing is caring!

What are TR and TE?

The repetition time (TR), the time to complete one full iteration of a pulse sequence, and the echo time (TE), the time between the start of a pulse sequence and the acquisition of data, are two parameters (usually reported in milliseconds [ms]) that are adjusted in a pulse sequence to change image contrast. TE is always shorter than TR.
