Motion correction in Dynamic Contrast Enhanced (DCE-) MRI is challenging because rapid intensity changes can compromise common (intensity based) registration algorithms. In this study we introduce a novel registration technique based on robust principal component analysis (RPCA) to decompose a given time-series into a low rank and a sparse component. This(More)
Complex haemodynamic phenomena underpin the pathophysiology of chronic liver disease. Non-invasive MRI-based assessment of hepatic vascular parameters therefore has the potential to yield meaningful biomarkers for chronic liver disease. In this review, we provide an overview of vascular sequelae of chronic liver disease amenable to imaging evaluation and(More)
Delays between contrast agent (CA) arrival at the site of vascular input function (VIF) sampling and the tissue of interest affect dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI pharmacokinetic modelling. We investigate effects of altering VIF CA bolus arrival delays on liver DCE MRI perfusion parameters, propose an alternative approach to estimating delays and(More)
