Quantitative magnetic susceptibility mapping (QSM) has recently been introduced to provide a novel quantitative and local MRI contrast. However, the anatomical contrast represented by in vivo susceptibility maps has not yet been compared systematically and comprehensively with gradient (recalled) echo (GRE) magnitude, frequency, and R(2)(*) images. Therefore, this study compares high-resolution quantitative susceptibility maps with conventional GRE imaging approaches (magnitude, frequency, R(2… Expand

High-resolution characterisation of the aging brain using simultaneous quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) and R2* measurements at 7T
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in vivo QSM using ultra-high field MRI provides a novel means to characterise age-related differences in the human brain, but also combining QSM and R2* using multi-gradient recalled echo imaging can potentially provide a more complete picture of mineralisation, demyelination and/or vascular alterations in aging and disease.

Exploring the origins of echo-time-dependent quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) measurements in healthy tissue and cerebral microbleeds
TLDR
The results show that TE‐dependent QSM measurements can be caused by a failure of phase unwrapping algorithms in and around strong susceptibility sources such as CMBs; however, in healthy brain regions this behavior appears to result from intrinsic non‐linear phase evolution in the MR signal.

Quantitative imaging of intrinsic magnetic tissue properties using MRI signal phase: An approach to in vivo brain iron metabolism?
TLDR
The findings suggest that susceptibility contrast, and therewith also phase contrast, are not only linked to the storage iron concentration but are also significantly influenced by other sources such as myelin, and caution should be exercised when drawing conclusions about iron concentrations when directly assessing processed phase information.

Magnetic susceptibility mapping of brain tissue in vivo using MRI phase data
TLDR
In susceptibility images, the contrast of cortical layers was more consistent than in phase images and was independent of the structures' orientation relative to B0, and the mean susceptibility in these regions was significantly correlated with their estimated iron content. Expand
