Phase Sensitive Reconstruction for Water/Fat Separation in MR Imaging Using Inverse Gradient
2007 (English)In: Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention – MICCAI 2007. 10th International Conference, Brisbane, Australia, October 29 - November 2, 2007, Proceedings, Part I / [ed] Nicholas Ayache, Sebastien Ourselin and Anthony Maeder, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2007, 210-218 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents a novel method for phase unwrapping for phase sensitive reconstruction in MR imaging. The unwrapped phase is obtained by integrating the phase gradient by solving a Poisson equation. An efficient solver, which has been made publicly available, is used to solve the equation. The proposed method is demonstrated on a fat quantification MRI task that is a part of a prospective study of fat accumulation. The method is compared to a phase unwrapping method based on region growing. Results indicate that the proposed method provides more robust unwrapping. Unlike region growing methods, the proposed method is also straight-forward to implement in 3D.
