Deconvolution of chemical shift spectra in two- or three-dimensional [19F] MR imaging.

Abstract

The chemical shift spectra of 19F in perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) present a nontrivial impulse response function for magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. The 19F images of organs containing PFCs can be degraded by blurring and ghost image artifacts. Two methods (noise masked deconvolution and maximum entropy deconvolution) are presented that allow the… (More)
