They too consist of layers, which cause constructive interference for green or purple light.
When the molecules in liquid crystals are aligned in the same direction, they reflect light of a particular colour due to a process known as constructive interference, and when viewed or illuminated from a different angle, a second colour can be observed.
The cisternal segment of CN V is evaluated best with high-resolution three dimensional heavily T2-weighted sequences, such as constructive interference in steady state (CISS), and fast imaging employing steady-state acquisition (FIESTA) (7, 12).
MR cisternography is performed using a three-dimensional thin-section heavily T2-weighted image fast spin-echo sequence or steady-state gradient-echo sequence (Constructive Interference in Steady State or Fast Imaging Employing Steady State Acquisition).
