Background static magnetic field gradients are a source of signal loss in gradient-echo imaging, as they typically result from discontinuity in the magnetic susceptibility at air-tissue boundaries. Moreover, these induced gradients severely compromise the measurement of R*(2), the effective transverse relaxation rate, which is of interest in many biomedical applications of MRI. Since the slice thickness is usually larger than the in-plane pixel dimensions, gradients parallel to the slice-select… CONTINUE READING
