The experiments reported herein are the first MRI investigations of the orientational dependence of T(2) relaxation in articular cartilage at microscopic resolution over the 360 degrees angular space. For each of six canine cartilage specimens, 48 independent T(2)-weighted proton images were acquired for 12 different specimen orientations. Pixel-wise(More)
Linear regularization is a common and robust technique for fitting multi-exponential relaxation decay data to obtain a distribution of relaxation times. The regularization algorithms employed by the Uniform-Penalty inversion (UPEN) and CONTIN computer programs have been compared using simulated transverse (T2) relaxation data derived from a typical bimodal(More)
The estimation of myocardial blood flow (MBF) by (13)N-ammonia or (82)Rb dynamic PET typically relies on an empirically determined generalized Renkin-Crone equation to relate the kinetic parameter K1 to MBF. Because the Renkin-Crone equation defines MBF as an implicit function of K1, the MBF variance cannot be determined using standard error propagation(More)
