Automatic MRI adipose tissue mapping using overlapping mosaics.

Abstract:

This paper presents an automatic method of correcting non-uniform RF coil response for the classification of body composition using MR imaging. By linear mosaic modelling, the smoothly but non-linearly varying bias field, which modulates tissue intensities within the image, was corrected. The overlapping between adjacent mosaics ensured consistent segmentation of body fat content and the effectiveness of the technique was validated by both phantom and in vivo experiments. Ten whole body compo...
