Phase image texture analysis for motion detection in diffusion MRI (PITA-MDD)

Nahla M.H. Elsaid, Jerry L. Prince, Steven Roys, Rao P. Gullapalli, Jiachen Zhuo
2019 Magnetic Resonance Imaging  
Pronounced spin phase artifacts appear in diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) with only minor subject motion.  ...  While DWI data corruption is often identified as signal drop out in diffusion-weighted (DW) magnitude images, DW phase images may have higher sensitivity for detecting subtle subject motion.  ...  Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) could be improved by incorporating a quality measure of each diffusion-weighted image and removing motion-corrupted data before data analysis.  ...

Diffusion MRI and its Role in Neuropsychology

Bryon A. Mueller, Kelvin O. Lim, Laura Hemmy, Jazmin Camchong
2015 Neuropsychology Review  
In this review, we begin with a definition of diffusion and how diffusion is measured with MRI. Next we introduce the diffusion tensor model, the predominant model used in dMRI.  ...  We then touch on reliability and validity issues of diffusion measurements.  ...  Due to long imaging times, however, subject movement artifacts made these measurements very difficult.  ...

Motion-Robust Diffusion-Weighted Brain MRI Reconstruction Through Slice-Level Registration-Based Motion Tracking

Bahram Marami, Benoit Scherrer, Onur Afacan, Burak Erem, Simon K. Warfield, Ali Gholipour
2016 IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging  
This work proposes a novel approach for motion-robust diffusion-weighted (DW) brain MRI reconstruction through tracking temporal head motion using slice-to-volume registration.  ...  The slice-level motion is estimated through a filtering approach that allows tracking the head motion during the scan and correcting for out-of-plane inconsistency in the acquired images.  ...  Noisy measurements may occur when fast subject motion results in through-plane motion artifacts or when slice-to-volume registration fails in the boundary of the imaged anatomy due to the lack of sufficient  ...
