Inflow effect correction in fast gradient-echo perfusion imaging.

Abstract

The purposes of this study were to assess the extent of the inflow effect on signal intensity (SI) for fast gradient-recalled-echo (GRE) sequences used to observe first-pass perfusion, and to develop and validate a correction method for this effect. A phantom experiment with a flow apparatus was performed to determine SI as a function of Gd-DTPA… (More)
