We present a technique to simplify the calibration procedure of the dual-energy scanning, using aluminum (AL) and plastic (PL) as basis materials. In essence, this method determines the "basis functions" of the basis materials at the chosen energies. This technique replaces the two-dimensional calibration procedure, which is tedious, by two simple(More)
It has been observed recently that the finite duration of refocusing rf pulses in a multiecho acquisition of the signal formed under the influence of the dipolar field leads to significant signal attenuation [S. Kennedy, Z. Chen, C.K. Wong, E.W.-C. Kwok, J. Zhong, Investigation of multiple-echo spin-echo signal acquisition under distant dipole-dipole(More)
In this paper, the utilization of the distant dipolar field (DDF) signal to extract the properties of susceptibility structures over a subvoxel length scale is investigated. Numerical simulations are performed to study a system of randomly distributed blood vessels with a susceptibility offset inside a voxel. It is shown that the DDF signal of the system as(More)
Real-time fMRI neurofeedback (rtfMRI-nf) with simultaneous EEG allows volitional modulation of BOLD activity of target brain regions and investigation of related electrophysiological activity. We applied this approach to study correlations between thalamic BOLD activity and alpha EEG rhythm. Healthy volunteers in the experimental group (EG, n=15) learned to(More)
A perturbation method based on the integral form of the Bloch equation is used to calculate the distant dipolar field (DDF) signal formed by the correlation spectroscopy revamped by asymmetric z-gradient echo detection (CRAZED) sequence in the presence of a susceptibility-induced field. The properties of the DDF signal are analyzed through the series(More)
