MRI - "IDEAL" MRI: Multipoint Chemical Shift Decomposition for MRI


Stanford Reference:

02-130


Abstract


This invention obtains high resolution, high quality images of articular cartilage with reduced imaging time. This is done via a novel generalized multi-point fat-water separation technique combined with three-dimensional steady-state free precession imaging.

Applications


  • MRI imaging improvement

Advantages


  • Improved fat-water separation with bright synovial fluid
  • Markedly reduced acquisition times
