Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is useful in the quantitative evaluation of brain atrophy, because the superior contrast resolution facilitates separation of the gray and white matter. Quantitative assessment of brain atrophy has mainly been performed by manual measurement, which requires considerable time and effort to determine the brain volume.(More)
In the direction where the phased array coil used in parallel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is perpendicular to the arrangement, sensitivity falls significantly. Moreover, in a 3.0 tesla (3T) abdominal MRI, the quality of the image is reduced by changes in the relaxation time, reinforcement of the magnetic susceptibility effect, etc. In a 3T MRI, which(More)
