PURPOSE
To present a method for estimating the local arterial input function (AIF) within a dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI scan, based on the alternating minimization with model (AMM) method.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
This method clusters a subset of data into representative curves, which are then input to the AMM algorithm to return a parameterized AIF and pharmacokinetic parameters. Computer simulations are used to investigate the accuracy with which the AMM is able to estimate the true AIF as a… CONTINUE READING
