The accurate assessment of pulmonary perfusion is especially important in the evaluation of patients with suspected pulmonary embolism, a common and potentially lethal disorder that can be treated by aggressive anticoagulation. In this study, we demonstrate for the first time the use of MR to image pulmonary perfusion in humans by using dynamic imaging(More)
The feasibility of qualitative assessment of pulmonary perfusion using dynamic contrast enhanced MRI with ultra-short TE has recently been demonstrated. In the current study, quantitative analysis was attempted based on the indicator dilution principle using a pig model of pulmonary embolism. The results were compared with the absolute pulmonary perfusion(More)
In a small fraction of patients with hypertension, the cause is stenosis of the renal artery. To date, there is no established noninvasive screening technique available to identify this population, for whom treatment with a surgical procedure or percutaneous transluminal angioplasty is often possible. In this study, the sensitivity and specificity of STAR(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate the phase evolutions of direct visualization of short transverse relaxation time component (ViSTa) matches with those of myelin water. METHOD Myelin water imaging (MWI) measures short transverse signals and has been suggested as a biomarker for myelin. Recently, a new approach, ViSTa, has been proposed to acquire short T2* signals(More)
PURPOSE To propose and evaluate a novel multidimensional approach for imaging subvoxel tissue compartments called Diffusion-Relaxation Correlation Spectroscopic Imaging. THEORY AND METHODS Multiexponential modeling of MR diffusion or relaxation data is commonly used to infer the many different microscopic tissue compartments that contribute signal to(More)
Glucocorticoids are associated with obesity, but the underlying mechanism by which they function remains poorly understood. Previously, we showed that small G protein Dexras1 is expressed by glucocorticoids and leads to adipocyte differentiation. In this study, we explored the mechanism by which Dexras1 mediates adipogenesis and show a link to the(More)
This work proposes a family of greedy algorithms to jointly reconstruct a set of vectors that are (i) nonnegative and (ii) simultaneously sparse with a shared support set. The proposed algorithms generalize previous approaches that were designed to impose these constraints individually. Similar to previous greedy algorithms for sparse recovery, the proposed(More)
