Quantitative T2 mapping

Research summary

Our technical work on quantitative T2 mapping focuses on the following directions:

  • Development of T2 mapping techniques which are robust to B1 and B0 inhomogeneities.
  • Development of water T2 mapping techniques minimally affected by the presence of fat in tissues with significant fat fraction.
