MR-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) is a non-invasive method by which tissue is ablated using ultrasound energy focused on a point. The procedure has proven effective for stationary targets (e.g. uterine fibroids) but has not yet been used for liver lesion treatment due to organ motion. We describe a method to compensate for organ motion to enable(More)
PURPOSE To investigate proton density (PD)-weighted zero TE (ZT) imaging for morphological depiction and segmentation of cranial bone structures. METHODS A rotating ultra-fast imaging sequence (RUFIS) type ZT pulse sequence was developed and optimized for 1) efficient capture of short T2 bone signals and 2) flat PD response for soft-tissues. An inverse(More)
We consider the problem of automatically prescribing oblique planes (short axis, 4 chamber and 2 chamber views) in Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). A concern with technologist-driven acquisitions of these planes is the quality and time taken for the total examination. We propose an automated solution incorporating anatomical features external to(More)
In this work we present a method for improving the speed of spin-spin relaxation time (T2) measurements for compartmental analysis in stimulated echo localized magnetic resonance spectroscopy without reducing the sampling density. The technique uses a progressive repetition time (TR) to compensate for echo time (TE) dependent variations in saturation(More)
