We present a branch-and-bound placement technique for building block layout that effectively searches for an optimal placement in the whole solution space. We first describe a block placement problem and its solution space. Then we explain branching and bounding operations designed for the placement problem. Constraints on critical nets and/or the shape of(More)
Quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) is a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique for noninvasively estimating the magnetic susceptibility of biological tissue. Several methods for QSM have been proposed. One of these methods can estimate susceptibility with high accuracy in tissues whose contrast is consistent between magnitude images and(More)
BACKGROUND Parallel imaging can be applied to cardiac imaging with a cylindrical MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) apparatus. Studies of open MRI, however, are few. This study sought to achieve cardiac cine parallel imaging (or RAPID, for "rapid acquisition through parallel imaging design") with an open 0.7T MRI apparatus. MATERIALS AND METHODS Imaging(More)
