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...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an important imaging modality, since it can create high-resolution cross-sectional images of the human body. In MRI scanners, the nuclear spin magnetization is excited using radio-frequency pulses. Images are created based on the time-evolution of this magnetization, which is characterized by relaxation times ...

BACKGROUND: Kidney disease is the most important predictor of death in patients with a Fontan circulation, yet its clinical and hemodynamic correlates have not been well established. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 53 ambulatory patients with a Fontan circulation (median age, 16.2 years, 52.8% male patients) underwent advanced cardiovascular...

Rationale and Objectives: Distinguishing malignant from benign liver lesions based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an important but often challenging task, especially in noncirrhotic livers. We developed and externally validated a radiomics model to quantitatively assess T2-weighted MRI to distinguish the most common malignant and...

Introduction: High cardiovascular mortality primarily limits survival following kidney transplantation (KTx). The increased risk is intrinsically connected to cardiac structural and functional abnormalities. LV volumetric imaging measurements are used to quantify this, such as left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and left ventricular end...

Pompe disease is a progressive muscular disorder that will affect the respiratory muscles, in particular the diaphragm, thereby seriously limiting the respiratory function. Respiratory function is typically assessed using spirometry. However early stages of diaphragm impairment may not be detected by conventional spirometry measurements due to...

Background: Histopathological examination in the diagnostic workflow of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) is essential. We aimed to develop a machine learning pipeline to predict human papillomavirus (HPV) status in OPSCC patients based on clinical variables and multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). <br/>Methods: In a...

Focal laser ablation is a new, promising method to treat tumors. The current focal laser ablation approach is to insert an optical fiber into the patient using rigid needles. A side effect of this approach is that during the needle insertion, tissue damage occurs. The larger the diameter of the needle, the more tissue damage. If the diameter of...

Detection of lymph node involvement has a significant negative impact on the treatment outcome for patients with head and neck squamous-cell carcinomas (SCC). Metastatic lymph nodes can be detected with high sensitivity by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET). However, 18F-FDG uptake is not only increased in...

Background and Objective: Numerical simulations of blood flow are a valuable tool to investigate the pathophysiology of ascending thoratic aortic aneurysms (ATAA). To accurately reproduce in vivo hemodynamics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models must employ realistic inflow boundary conditions (BCs). However, the limited availability of...

Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) aims to disentangle multiple biological signal sources in each imaging voxel, enabling the computation of innovative maps of tissue microstructure. DW-MRI model development has been dominated by brain applications. More recently, advanced methods with high fidelity to histology are...

Objective: Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) holds great promise for the early detection of cartilage deterioration. Here, a Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (MRF) framework is proposed for comprehensive and rapid quantification of T <sub>1</sub>, T <sub>2</sub> <sup>∗</sup>, and T <sub>RAFF2</sub> with whole-knee coverage....

Over the past decade, significant progress in quantum technologies has been made, and hence, engineering of these systems has become an important research area. Many researchers have become interested in studying ways in which classical integrated circuits can be used to complement quantum mechanical systems, enabling more compact, performant...

Purpose: To investigate and mitigate the influence of physiological and acquisition-related parameters on myocardial blood flow (MBF) measurements obtained with myocardial Arterial Spin Labeling (myoASL). Methods: A Flow-sensitive Alternating Inversion Recovery (FAIR) myoASL sequence with bSSFP and spoiled GRE (spGRE) readout is investigated...

We present application and developments of qMRI. We reconstructed data from the Prediva Ouderen Extentie (POE) database and calculated quantitative maps. The POE database consists of 29 7 Tesla (T) whole-brain MRI scans, including both male and female participants covering the age group between 80 and 91 years old. We used this data to extend...

In this article, we present full-wave signal models for magnetic and electric field measurements in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Our analysis is based on a scattering formalism in which the presence of an object or body is taken into account via an electric scattering source. We show that these signal models can be evaluated, provided...

Quantitative MRI (qMRI) of the heart has become an important clinical tool for examining myocardial tissue properties. Because heart is a moving object, it is usually imaged with electrocardiogram and respiratory gating during acquisition, to “freeze” its motion. In reality, gating is more-often-than-not imperfect given the heart rate...

Late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) with cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging is the clinical reference for assessment of myocardial scar and focal fibrosis. However, current LGE techniques are confined to imaging of a single cardiac phase, which hampers assessment of scar motility and does not allow cross-comparison between multiple phases....

Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (MRF) is a relatively new approach for simultaneously estimating multiple quantitative maps in one acquisition. Sequence optimisation for MRF can be a powerful tool in increasing the accuracy an precision of the quantitative results. Multi-component analysis in the MRF framework can distinguish multiple...

Standard treatment methods for prostate cancer often result in side-effects because of damage to the surrounding tissue. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided focal laser ablation to treat prostate cancer reduces the risk of adverse effects by preserving noncancerous tissue. Prostate cancer diagnosis and focal laser ablation treatment both...
