Bi-exponential Magnetic Resonance Signal Model for Partial Volume Computation [chapter]

Quentin Duché, Oscar Acosta, Giulio Gambarota, Isabelle Merlet, Olivier Salvado, Hervé Saint-Jalmes
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Accurate quantification of small structures in magnetic resonance (MR) images is often limited by partial volume (PV) effects which arise when more than one tissue type is present in a voxel.  ...  Then, based on the bi-exponential formulation one can retrieve fractional contents by solving a linear system of two equations with two unknowns, namely tissue magnetizations.  ...  This work is partially funded by the "Région Bretagne".  ...
