The flipped longitudinal polarization sequence.
Summary of "The flipped longitudinal polarization sequence."
By flipping the longitudinal magnetization with a chain of 180 degrees pulses it is possible to effectively restore the effects of relaxation so that the same longitudinal magnetization is periodically recovered. The pulse sequence for achieving this, called Flipped LOngitudinal Polarization (FLOP), can be incorporated into any pulse sequence whenever it is desired to stop the attenuation in longitudinal magnetization caused by relaxation. We illustrate its use for fast, single-shot measurements of the longitudinal relaxation time and for three-dimensional T(1) mapping.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The deletion and reinsertion of a segment of a nucleic acid sequence in the same place, but flipped in an opposite orientation.
Two extensive fibrous bands running the length of the vertebral column. The anterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale anterius; lacertus medius) interconnects the anterior surfaces of the vertebral bodies; the posterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale posterius) interconnects the posterior surfaces. The commonest clinical consideration is OSSIFICATION OF POSTERIOR LONGITUDINAL LIGAMENT. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
Measurement of the polarization of fluorescent light from solutions or microscopic specimens. It is used to provide information concerning molecular size, shape, and conformation, molecular anisotropy, electronic energy transfer, molecular interaction, including dye and coenzyme binding, and the antigen-antibody reaction.
Fluorescence Polarization Immunoassay
Fluoroimmunoassay where detection of the hapten-antibody reaction is based on measurement of the increased polarization of fluorescence-labeled hapten when it is combined with antibody. The assay is very useful for the measurement of small haptenic antigens such as drugs at low concentrations.
Ossification Of Posterior Longitudinal Ligament
A calcification of the posterior longitudinal ligament of the spinal column, usually at the level of the cervical spine. It is often associated with anterior ankylosing hyperostosis.
Experimental sensitivity remains a major drawback for the application of NMR spectroscopy to fragile and low concentrated biomolecular samples. Here we describe an efficient polarization enhancement m...
Spin polarization is an unusually ambiguous scientific idiom and, as such, is rarely well defined. A given experimental methodology may allow one to quantify a spin polarization but only in its partic...
Longitudinal atlas construction plays an important role in medical image analysis. Given a set of longitudinal images from different subjects, the task of longitudinal atlas construction is to build a...
