We present a method for producing accurate calculated T1 and spin density nuclear magnetic resonance images. A modified Carr-Purcell-Meiboom-Gill pulse sequence is used to obtain a series of images containing both T1 and T2 dependence. The image series is first analyzed to remove the T2 dependence. The resulting images are then analyzed, pixel by pixel, to generate an image containing T1 values and an image containing values proportional to spin density (SD). Tests performed on two phantoms… CONTINUE READING
