Abstract

PURPOSE: Parameter mapping in sodium MRI data is challenging due to inherently low SNR and spatial resolution, prompting the need to employ robust models and estimation techniques. This work aims to develop a continuum model of sodium T 2 * -decay to overcome the limitations of the commonly employed bi-exponential models. Estimates of mean T 2 * -decay and fast component fraction in ti..
