Question: I just had an MRI/DTI of my brain for possible alcoholic dementia. It was a T2/FLAIR and DMI -- both with and without contrast. I have the disk and understand the technology, but confused on how white matter would appear on T2 and T2/FLAIR and Diffusion Tensor Imaging.
Is white matter dark on T2? An are ventricles blackish due to flair? Thank you
