A new method for computing the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of magnetic resonance images is presented. The proposed method is a "difference of images" based technique where two images are produced from one acquisition in which the readout direction field of view (FOV) and matrix size are doubled compared to the phase encode direction. Two "normal" unaliased(More)
DC decoupling currents applied to receive-only coils during radiofrequency transmission can create stray magnetic fields capable of changing the resonant frequency of nearby nuclei. It is difficult to measure these fields with conventional field-mapping techniques because the fields are not present when the signal is acquired. The stray fields can be(More)
