Noninvasive temperature measurement is feasible with MRI to monitor changes in thermal therapy. Phase shift based MR thermometry gives an estimate of the relative temperature variation between thermal and baseline images. This technique is limited, however, when applied on targets under inter-frame motion. Simple image registration and subtraction are not(More)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging allows for minimally invasive targeting and thermal ablation of tumors while monitoring the temperature distribution. Conventional MR thermometry procedures are hampered by either low accuracy or high sensitivity to motion artifacts due to the use of a reference temperature image. A new, dual-echo technique has been developed to(More)
