Myocardial perfusion, the blood flow to the heart muscle, can be evaluated by tracing the passage of a contrast agent using cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. This technique, well-established for diagnosing coronary artery disease, is limited by the necessity for breath-holding, subjective assessment, and low myocardial coverage. In this...

Helfferich, Florens (author)
The tissue electrical properties of conductivity and permittivity affect the interactions of electromagnetic fields in the body. These properties vary throughout the different tissues as the tissue structure and composition varies. In this thesis, medical imaging and diagnosis is used as primary example to motivate exploration of a novel...

Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) is a local dilation of the thoracic aorta. Although universally used, aneurysm diameter alone is a poor predictor of major complications such as rupture. There is a need for better biomarkers for risk assessment that also reflect the aberrant flow patterns found in TAAs. Furthermore, hypertension is often...

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) protocols can be lengthy and complex, which has driven the research community to develop new technologies to make these protocols more efficient and patient-friendly. Two different approaches to improving CMR have been proposed, specifically “all-in-one” CMR, where several contrasts and/or motion states...

Quantitative cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an increasingly important diagnostic tool for cardiovascular diseases. Yet, co-registration of all baseline images within the quantitative MRI sequence is essential for the accuracy and precision of quantitative maps. However, co-registering all baseline images from a quantitative...

Deep learning-based methods have achieved prestigious performance for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) reconstruction, enabling fast imaging for many clinical applications. Previous methods employ convolutional networks to learn the image prior as the regularization term. In quantitative MRI, the physical model of nuclear magnetic resonance...

This thesis research focuses on MRI technology and more specifically the evaluation of the generalized signal model (full-wave signal). The research aims to investigate how dielectric properties influence the magnetic fields in MRI scans, by using a more complex signal model that takes into account scattered fields caused by dielectric...

Magnetic resonance electrical properties tomography is a type of quantitative magnetic resonance imaging that aims to reconstruct the conductivity and permittivity of biological tissue. These electrical properties of the tissue can be used to compute the specific absorption rate, to differentiate tumours from healthy tissue and for hyperthermia...

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive tool to image the body’s anatomy and physiology, but suffers from long scan times. Compressed Sensing (CS) is used to accelerate MRI scans by incoherently taking fewer measurements and using a nonlinear optimization algorithm to image the undersampled data. Convex optimization techniques are...

<b>Introduction</b>: Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an important therapeutic option for various neurological diseases. For certain indications the optimal target cannot be identified on structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), but can be visualized with tractography. A recent improvement for clinical practice is the probabilistic...

Every year, 180000 new cases of hydrocephalus are diagnosed among infants in Sub-Saharan Africa. Unfortunately, more than two-thirds of the population in this region lacks access to essential medical imaging technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). To address this issue, a collaborative effort between the TU Delft, Leiden...

For several years, the dynamics of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the subarachnoid and perivascular space (SAS and PVS) have been a topic of controversy. Both the SAS and PVS are part of the glymphatic system, a network of CSF-filled regions crucial to waste disposal in the brain. The CSF in this system transports the waste, which is why fluid...

Quantitative cardiac MRI is an increasingly important diagnostic tool for cardiovascular diseases. Yet, it is essential to have correct image registration for good accuracy and precision of quantitative mapping. Registering all baseline images from a quantitative cardiac MRI sequence, however, is nontrivial because the patient is moving, leading...

Aortic aneurysm, a balloon-like enlargement of the healthy artery, is a cardiovascular disease with one of the highest mortality rates. These numbers are due to the usual late diagnosis of the aneurysm, which is often asymptomatic until a fatal event occurs. Such an event can progress to aortic dissection or rupture. Due to the urgent nature of...

Primary liver cancer is a commonly diagnosed cancer and accurate diagnosis is crucial for treatment planning. To differentiate between malignant and benign liver tumors, contrast-enhanced MRI is typically used as it provides information over multiple contrast phases. However, diagnosis based on MRI is challenging. In this study, automatic...

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a clinical imaging technique that allows for non-invasive visualization inside the human body with excellent soft tissue contrast with a sub-millimeter resolution. Qualitative MRI is used to visually highlight normal or pathological components by exploiting the physical properties of different tissues. However...

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a group of disorders of the heart and blood vessels.<br/>CVDs are the leading cause of death worldwide. To diagnose and treat CVDs, clinicians and cardiologists use multiple noninvasive imaging techniques. These scans are used to segment certain structures of the heart. Deep learning-based cardiac segmentation...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a flexible medical imaging technique that facilitates measurement of a wide range of contrasts particularly in soft tissue (e.g. brain and heart). Conventionally, qualitative images are acquired in which certain physical tissue properties are emphasized such as the transverse and longitudinal relaxation times....

Introduction: Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a commonly used technique for the initial diagnosis of gliomas. T1, T2, T2-FLAIR, and post-contrast T1 with gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) can show tumor characteristics. However, using this contrast agent poses a risk to patients with kidney failures, has environmental impact, and increases...
