Repository Overview

  • demo.m: Example script comparing water–fat separation w/ and w/o demodulation of estimated field contributions.
  • utils/:
    • get_magnetInhomogeneities_Hz.m: estimate inhomogeneities of the main magnetic field
    • get_shimField_Hz.m: compute the shim field
    • get_objectBasedFieldmap_Hz.m: estimate the object-based fast field map estimate from the article Sharma, S. D., Artz, N. S., Hernando, D., Horng, D. E., & Reeder, S. B., Improving chemical shift encoded water-fat separation using object-based information of the magnetic field inhomogeneity, Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, 73(2), 597–604 (2014). http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/mrm.25163
    • get_residualLinearField_Hz.m: estimate a residual linear field
  • 20151101_151725_0302_ImDataParams.mat: example data set of the cervical region
  • fwtoolbox_v1_code/: excerpt from the ISMRM water–fat toolbox (version 1) containing MATLAB implementations of the graph cut water–fat separation algorithm (Hernando, D., Kellman, P., Haldar, J. P., & Liang, Z., Robust water/fat separation in the presence of large field inhomogeneities using a graph cut algorithm, Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, 63(1), (2009). http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/mrm.22177) and the hierachical IDEAL algorithm (Tsao, J., & Jiang, Y., Hierarchical ideal: fast, robust, and multiresolution separation of multiple chemical species from multiple echo times, Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, 70(1), 155–159 (2012). http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/mrm.24441). Full toolbox available here: http://www.ismrm.org/workshops/FatWater12/data.htm
