Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate the impact of motion on T1 values acquired by using either inversion-recovery fast spin echo (IR-FSE) or three-dimensional (3D) spoiled gradient recalled-echo (SPGR) sequences for delayed gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging of cartilage (dGEMRIC) in volunteers. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Single-slice IR-FSE and 3D SPGR sequences were applied to perform dGEMRIC in five healthy volunteers. A mutual information-based approach was used to correct for image misregistration. Displacements were expressed as averaged Euclidean distances and angles. Averages of differences in goodness of fit (Deltachi(2)) tests and averages of relative differences in T1 values (DeltaT1) before and after motion correction were computed. RESULTS: Maximum Euclidean distance was 3.5 mm and 1.2 mm for IR-FSE and SPGR respectively. Mean +/- SD of Deltachi(2) were 10.18 +/- 8.4 for IR-FSE and -1.37 +/- 5.5 for SPGR. Mean +/- SD of DeltaT1 were 0.008 +/- 0.0048 for IR-FSE and -0.002 +/- 0.019 for FSPGR. Pairwise comparison of Deltachi(2) values showed a significant difference for IR-FSE, but not for 3D-SPGR. Significantly greater variability in T1 values was also noted for IR-FSE than for 3D-SPGR. CONCLUSION: Involuntary motion has a significant influence on T1 values acquired with IR-FSE, but not with 3D-SPGR in healthy volunteers.

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.
