PURPOSE Reduced bone strength is associated with a loss of bone mass, usually evaluated by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, although it is known that the bone microstructure also affects the bone strength. Here, a method is proposed to measure (in laboratory) the bone volume-to-total volume ratio by single-sided NMR scanners, which is related to the(More)
Compressed sensing technique is a recent framework for signal sampling and recovery. It allows signal acquisition with less sampling than required by Nyquist-Shannon theorem and reduces data acquisition time in MRI. When the sampling rate is low, prior knowledge is essential to reconstruct the missing features. In this paper, a different reconstruction(More)
Recent compressed sensing techniques allow signal acquisition with less sampling than required by the Nyquist-Shannon theorem which reduces the data acquisition time in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). However, prior knowledge becomes essential to reconstruct detailed features when the sampling rate is exceedingly low. In this work, one compressed sensing(More)
The time-dependent apparent diffusion coefficient as measured by pulsed gradient NMR can be used to estimate parameters of porous structures including the surface-to-volume ratio and the mean curvature of pores. In this work, the short-time diffusion limit and in particular the influence of the temporal profile of diffusion gradients on the expansion as(More)
Complex materials are ubiquitous in science, engineering and nature. One important parameter for characterising their morphology is the degree of anisotropy. Magnetic resonance imaging offers non-invasive methods for quantitative measurements of the materials anisotropy, most commonly via diffusion tensor imaging and the subsequent extraction of the(More)
