PURPOSE Venous blood oxygen saturation is an indicator of brain oxygen consumption and can be measured directly from quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) by deconvolving the MR phase signal. However, accurate estimation of the susceptibility of blood may be affected by flow induced phase in the presence of imaging gradient and the inhomogeneous susceptibility field gradient. The purpose of this study is to correct the flow induced error in QSM for improved venous oxygenation quantification… CONTINUE READING
