Minimum Field Strength Simulator for Proton Density Weighted MRI

  title={Minimum Field Strength Simulator for Proton Density Weighted MRI},
  author={Ziyue Wu and Weiyi Chen and K. Nayak},
  journal={PLoS ONE},
Objective To develop and evaluate a framework for simulating low-field proton-density weighted MRI acquisitions based on high-field acquisitions, which could be used to predict the minimum B0 field strength requirements for MRI techniques. This framework would be particularly useful in the evaluation of de-noising and constrained reconstruction techniques. Materials and Methods Given MRI raw data, lower field MRI acquisitions can be simulated based on the signal and noise scaling with field… Expand
