### How can we treat real signal as imaginary?

I'm studying MRI and I couldn't understand this assumption(?) The sentence 'The signal from one channel is no more or less "real" than that from the other channel.' Does not make sense to ...

### How to reconstruct image from an Under Sampled MRI k-space data?

Hardware We have a homemade MRI machine (from the open source project openimaging). It has a single coil and B0 = 0.5 Tesla (enough for teaching). Sampling Mask We used a randomly generated sampling ...

### What is the most likely imaging processing step associated with the term 'Riesz' in clinical MRI?

I understand that it is an odd question, and this is arguably not the ideal forum, but I am at a loss. Some of you may be familiar with DICOM as a consensus or standard format for medical image ...

### Bring two Fourier transforms to same range to add them

I have Fourier transforms of two images which I wish to add (Basically I have an input Fourier transform which I mask, reconstruct the underlying image using an algorithm, and then try to replace the ...

### removing stripy artifact from fMRI

I have fMRI images, some of which have a stripy artifact that looks like a Gabor filter. Removing this kind of noise is not, to my knowledge, a standard part of any fMRI processing pipeline. I am ...

### T1 Mapping in Python?

I'm trying to write a simple program to perform T1 mapping of a few MRI Images. My understanding is that all I need is to plot the pixel intensity values by inversion time then fit a curve. The output ...

### Adding noise to real MRI data

I designed an algorithm for MRI data denoising which has good properties under heavy Rician noise (sigma is greater than 80). The method was tested on some phantoms and Rician noise generators. Now I ...

### Why do we not encode frequency in 3 dimensions in MRI?

If I understand correctly, to select a particular slice (of an object, during an MRI scan) that is orthogonal to the direction of the main magnetic field applied, we apply a magnetic field that varies ...

### Will the phase of the reconstructed data using a single MRI k-space point show any curvature?

Some courses tell that each point in k-space (spatial-frequency domain) represents a certain stripe pattern in spatial domain. Reference: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/...

Bottom-line: how to create a 90 degrees out of phase signal from the real part of the fourier transform of a 1D signal (i.e., fft of a line of an image). ? *(I *(I think the Fourier shift thm can help ...

### 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 de-noising and the results are nothing that great. I can't see how ...

### 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, ...

### Bloch equations in MRI rotating field

I am trying to understand the workings of an MRI scanner and wanted to figure out how to simulate it by solving Bloch equations in the rotating frame of reference. I have a small query regarding the ...

### 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 ...

### MRI reconstruction using windowing based apodization

I am trying to apply windowing to do MRI reconstruction. I have a 256 point one dimensional k-space samples which look as follows: Here, the real part(green) is flat around 0 and the blue curve is ...

### 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 ...

### reconstruction of MRI signal

I have written a small simulator where I am trying to simulate the MRI signal generation process. I have a SINC RF Pulse to excite the spins and a readout gradient and k-space sampling during the ...

### Effective field in MRI when solving for Bloch equations

I have a confusion regarding MRI signal formation. So, as I understand it, we need to solve the Bloch equations for the excitation and the relaxation stages: So, in the excitation stage, let us ...

### The description of the MRI signal from the magnetization vector

I have been working on simulating the MRI signal and what I have done so far is simulate the actions of the RF pulse and the required localization gradients. So, in the simulation, I am looking at a ...
