# Parameter Weighting

Following are some of the main parameter weighting techniques being used in MRI:


# T1-weighted

# T2-weighted

# T1Gd


# Imaging Planes

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is partially defined by the plane or direction of the image that is taken. The most important model coordinate system for medical imaging is the anatomical coordinate system (also called patient coordinate system).

# The Three Basic Anatomical Planes:

This coordinate system consists of three planes to describe the standard anatomical position of a human. The basic orientation terms for an MRI of the body taken: From the side would be a sagittal plane; from the front would be a coronal plane and from the top down would be a transverse or axial plane.
