The image is essen­ tially a map of the hydrogen content of tissue, therefore reflecting largely the water concentration, but influenced also by the physical and chemical environment of the hydrogen atoms. The terms Tl- and T2-weighting refer to the time constants for proton relaxation; these may be altered to highlight certain features of tissue structure. In Tl-weighted images, CSF appears dark and gray matter is hypointense to white matter. In T2-weighted images, CSF appears bright, and gray matter is hyperintense to white matter.
