I really liked the article. I'm trying to learn more about the fundamentals of this kind of equipment after medical school. The image at the beginning is a sagittal T1 weighted MRI (rather than a CT that is gathered axially). You can tell because the fat is high signal and bone is low whereas CT would have bright bone and less contrast within the brain.

The links were also especially helpful. Thanks for writing this.
