T1-weighted structural MRI study of cannabis users at baseline and 3 years follow up

Heavy cannabis users (N=20, age baseline M=20.5, SD=2.1) and non-cannabis using healthy controls (N=22, age baseline M=21.6, SD=2.45) underwent a comprehensive psychological assessment and a T1-weighted structural MRI scan at baseline and 3 years follow-up.

All structural MRI scans were acquired using a 3T MRI scanner (Intera, Philips Healthcare, Best, The Netherlands) with a phased array SENSE eight-channel receiver head coil. For each participant, a T1-weighted structural MRI image was acquired (T1 turbo field echo, TR 9.6 s, TE 4.6 s, 182 slices, slice thickness 1.2 mm, FOV 256x256 mm, in-plane resolution 256x256 mm, flip angle 8 degrees).
