Various regularization methods have been proposed for single-orientation quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM), which is an ill-posed magnetic field to susceptibility source inverse problem. Noise amplification, a major issue in inverse problems, manifests as streaking artifacts and quantification errors in QSM and has not been comparatively evaluated(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the feasibility of morphological and functional evaluation of the lateral pterygoid muscle (LPM) by diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in vivo. METHODS 30 healthy volunteers underwent DTI with the jaw in the rest position, opening and clenching. Diffusion parameters of the superior head of the LPM (SHLP) and the inferior head of the LPM(More)
Quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) has shown its potential for anatomical and functional MRI, as it can quantify, for in vivo tissues, magnetic biomarkers and contrast agents which have differential susceptibilities to the surroundings substances. For reconstructing the QSM with a single orientation, various methods have been proposed to identify a(More)
