UNLABELLED MR-based attenuation correction is instrumental for integrated PET/MR imaging. It is generally achieved by segmenting MR images into a set of tissue classes with known attenuation properties (e.g., air, lung, bone, fat, soft tissue). Bone identification with MR imaging is, however, quite challenging, because of the low proton density and fast decay time of bone tissue. The clinical evaluation of a novel, recently published method for zero-echo-time (ZTE)-based MR bone depiction and… CONTINUE READING
