Why hasn't magnetic resonance flow quantification achieved greater utilization? Technical limitations

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has the potential to simultaneously provide flow velocity information in addition to diagnostic images: the potential time resolution is on the order of tens of milliseconds while the spatial resolution is on the order of 1.0 mm3. Theoretical descriptions and practical implementations of measurement techniques have been found in the MR literature since the early 1980's. However, MRI based flow quantification techniques have made only slight inroads into practical utilization. This work describes basic methods for MR imaging, the basis for phase/velocity encoding, and a number of technical and practical factors which have limited the acceptance of MR based flow measurements and prevented greater utilization in the clinical and/or commercial arenas.
