For all T1 sequences, please keep TE below 20 (between 10 and 15 If possible); TR 500-600.

For all T2 FS sequences, use equivalent of FSEITSE. TE of mid to upper 50's is the most ideal.

It is important to have TE long enough for T2 weighting but not so long that it is signal starved.

For STIR, TI =135
