3D sequences used for DCE-MRI can exhibit initial instabilities that will affect T1 quantification

Abstract

Introduction Dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) imaging allows for the characterization of vascular tissue properties, such as local tissue perfusion rate and capillary permeability. To model the pharmacokinetic behaviour of the injected contrast agent, precise and accurate precontrast T1 estimates are essential. By evaluating the DCE-MRI protocols using… (More)
