Machine learning for denoising MRI images

I'm currently a sophomore in college and pretty new to the field of research. I'm currently working on an existing algorithm for MRI denoising and the results are nothing that great. I can't see how I ...

MRI image reconstruction - reduced scan pecentage

I have an MRI kspace from a siemens 1.5 T scanner with reduced scan percentage ( sampled truncation by not acquiring the most peripheral lines in kspace). The kspace plot in matlab look like below. I ...

From Fourier (k space) to wavelet domain in MRI sensing

In compressed sensing MRI (cSENSE MRI) technology the idea seems to entail sampling from the Fourier domain (k space) in a way that, when transformed to the wavelet domain ("sparsification"), the ...

Order of MR Imaging Encoding Steps

Why is it so important to have the phase gradient encoding step come before the frequency gradient encoding step when collecting MR Images? Currently, the phase encoding step is turned on briefly, ...

Question about MRI signal construction

As I understand it, in MRI, a line in k-space is usually acquired while the readout gradient is applied. So during the application of this gradient the protons spin at different frequencies along the ...

Effect on T1 relaxation due to the application of the gradient

In MRI, the T1 relaxation constant for a tissue type is defined as the time taken for the longitudinal relaxation to recover approximately to 63% of its initial value. Is there any modification of ...
