Separation of collagen-bound and porous bone-water longitudinal relaxation in mice using a segmented inversion recovery zero-echo-time sequence


Marcon, Magda; Keller, Daniel; Wurnig, Moritz C; Weiger, Markus; Kenkel, David; Eberhardt, Christian; Eberli, Daniel; Boss, Andreas (2016). Separation of collagen-bound and porous bone-water longitudinal relaxation in mice using a segmented inversion recovery zero-echo-time sequence. Magnetic Resonance in Medicine:Epub ahead of print.

Abstract

PURPOSE Cortical bone mechanical properties are related to the collagen-bound water (CBW) and pore water (PW) components of cortical bone. The study evaluates the feasibility of zero-echo-time imaging in mice in vivo for longitudinal relaxation time (T1) measurements in cortical bone and separation of CBW and PW components.
METHODS Zero-echo-time data were acquired at 4.7 Tesla in six mice with 14 different inversion times (0-2,600 ms). Region-of-interest analysis was performed at level of femur diaphysis. The T1 of cortical bone and of CBW (T1cbw) and PW (T1pw) as well as the CBW fraction (cbwf) was computed using a mono-exponential and a bi-exponential fitting approach, respectively. The sum of the squared residuals (Res) to the fit was provided for both approaches.
RESULTS For the mono-exponential model, mean T1 ± standard deviation (SD) was 1,057 ± 160 ms. The bi-exponential approach provided a reliable separation of two different bone-water components, with a mean T1cbw of 213 ± 95 ms, T1pw of 2,152 ± 894 ms, and cbwf of 7.4 ± 2.7 %. Lower Res was obtained with bi-exponential approach (P < 0.001), and Res mean values ± SD were 0.016 ± 0.007 (bi-exponential) and 0.033 ± 0.016 (mono-exponential).
CONCLUSION Zero-echo-time imaging allows for longitudinal relaxation measurements of cortical bone in vivo in mice models, with a reliable separation of PW and CBW components using a bi-exponential curve fitting approach. Magn Reson Med, 2016.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
