These are the most common locations of TAI. 2. FLAIR, GRE/T2*/SWI, and DWI are the most useful MRI sequences in the evaluation of TAI. 3 for the utility of the MRI sequences. 3. Eighty percent of TAIs are nonhemorrhagic and not visible on CT. 4. Susceptibility-weighted imaging sequences are extremely sensitive for the identification of microhemorrhagic TAI.
