PURPOSE T2 -weighted imaging is of great diagnostic value in neuroimaging. Three-dimensional (3D) Cartesian turbo spin echo (TSE) scans provide high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and contiguous slice coverage. The purpose of this preliminary work is to implement a novel 3D spiral TSE technique with image quality comparable to 2D/3D Cartesian TSE. METHODS(More)
Conductive atomic force microscopy has been used to characterize distance-dependent electron transport behavior in InAs nanowires grown by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition. Using a conducting diamond-coated tip as a local electrical probe in an atomic force microscope, the resistance of the InAs nanowire has been measured as a function of electron(More)
Radio-frequency current density imaging (RF-CDI) is an imaging technique that noninvasively measures current density distribution at the Larmor frequency utilizing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Previously implemented RF-CDI techniques were only able to image a single slice transverse to the static magnetic field B(0) . This paper describes the first(More)
Scanning gate microscopy, in which a conductive probe tip in an atomic force microscope is employed as a local, nanoscale top gate contact, has been used to characterize local carrier and current modulation effects in a 45 nm diameter InAs semiconductor nanowire grown by metal organic chemical vapor deposition. Measurement of current flow in the nanowire as(More)
PURPOSE The three-dimensional (3D) spiral turbo spin echo (TSE) sequence is one of the preferred readout methods for arterial spin labeled (ASL) perfusion imaging. Conventional spiral TSE collects the data using a spiral-out readout on a stack of spirals trajectory. However, it may result in suboptimal image quality and is not flexible in protocol design.(More)
PURPOSE The goal of this work is to present a new three-point analytical approach with flexible even or uneven echo increments for water-fat separation and to evaluate its feasibility with spiral imaging. THEORY AND METHODS Two sets of possible solutions of water and fat are first found analytically. Then, two field maps of the B0 inhomogeneity are(More)
Radio-frequency current density imaging (RF-CDI) is a technique that noninvasively measures current density distributions at the Larmor frequency utilizing magnetic resonance imaging. Previously implemented RF-CDI methods reconstruct the applied current density component J(z) along the static magnetic field of the imager [(B)\vec](0) (the z direction) based(More)
Polar Decomposition Radio-frequency Current Density Imaging (PD-RFCDI) is an imaging technique that non-invasively measures RF current density components inside a sample using MRI. Previous PD-RFCDI implementations suffer from the strict constraint on the amount of applied current as well as severe interference from the unwanted induced current. This work(More)
Current density imaging (CDI) is a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique used to quantitatively measure current density vectors throughout the volume of an object/subject placed in the MRI system. Electrical current pulses are applied externally to the object/subject and are synchronized with the MRI sequence. In this work, CDI is used to measure(More)
