Susceptibility, field inhomogeneity, and chemical shift-corrected NMR microscopy: application to the human finger in vivo
1996 (English)In: Magnetic Resonance Imaging, ISSN 0730-725X, E-ISSN 1873-5894, Vol. 14, no 10, 1165-1175 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Spectroscopic proton image data recorded with the aid of a gradient-echo spectroscopic imaging pulse sequence are reported. A postdetection processing method is suggested which permits correction of artifacts due to inhomogeneity, susceptibility, and chemical-shift resonance offsets. That is, apart from the spectral information available in this way, better spatial resolutions can be achieved. The method is demonstrated by resonance-offset corrected images of the human finger in vivo. Moreover, resonance-line selective and spectroscopically resolved diffusion-weighted images and diffusivity maps rendered with the aid of the same postdetection procedure are shown.
