Semiautomated method for noise reduction and background phase error correction in MR phase velocity data
Background phase distortion and random noise can adversely affect the quality of magnetic resonance (MR) phase velocity measurements. A semiauto‐mated method has been developed that substantiallyExpand

True myocardial motion tracking
Myocardial tagging is a powerful tool for the assessment of in‐plane cardiac motion. However, for previous myocardial tagging techniques, the imaged slice is fixed with respect to the magnetExpand

Hemodynamics in the carotid artery bifurcation: a comparison between numerical simulations and in vitro MRI measurements.
The presence of atherosclerotic plaques has been shown to be closely related to the vessel geometry. Studies on postmortem human arteries and on the experimental animal show positive correlationExpand

Heart motion adapted cine phase‐contrast flow measurements through the aortic valve
A method for magnetic resonance cine velocity mapping through heart valves with adaptation of both slice offset and angulation according to the motion of the valvular plane of the heart is presented.Expand

Quantitative abdominal aortic flow measurements at controlled levels of ergometer exercise.
Measuring the exercise-induced flow changes in the arteries of the body is a major challenge. The use of quantitative MR flow measurements for this purpose is hampered by movement artifacts and ECGExpand

Coil Sensitivity Encoding for Fast MRI
INTRODUCTION As suggested earlier by various authors [1-5] the sensitivity of a receiver coil may be regarded as a modification of the harmonic encoding functions in Fourier imaging. According toExpand
